Kolobrzeg, Poland, July 261992 by Rineke Dijkstra

Dijkstra usually realizes series of portraits of a single person. Her famous series “Beaches” was realized from 1992 to 1996; its images represent adoloscents in their bathing suits standing on the beach and show the insecurity and the awkwardness these young people feel about their changing bodies.

Dijkstra creates photographic series of people in related settings (or the same person over time) to highlight physical and emotional similarities, as well as marked differences. Unlike many post-modern photographers who adopt a directorial approach to photography, she attempts to make her subjects less conscious of the camera. Each shot made with her large-format camera takes a long time to set up, which discourages her subjects from holding a pose or particular facial expression.
