Me and My Models
Author: Jan Hoek
Publisher: Art Paper Editions
Size: 30 x 38 cm
A series of photographs of amateur models captured by photographer Jan Hoek.
Jan Hoek's subjects include a whole range of amateur models, from homeless fashionistas in Africa to a heroin addict looking for a career as a model and people who he met via adverts or on the internet.
The photo shoots rarely proceed as planned as the photographer and the model often have different expectations. When the model is seeking intimacy, Jan Hoek wants to take a photo of the dog. The model wants to be glamorous; Hoek wants to show the decay.
