ARTmonday: Rineke Dijkstra’s Beaches Portraits

Dutch Photographer Rineke Dijkstra Portraits Beaches

In the mid ’90s, when I lived in NYC, I saw the series of “Beaches” photos by  Dutch photographer Rineke Dijkstra. At a gallery or an art fair… I actually don’t remember. But I have the book that I bought and have enjoyed. And I have since seen her work again, at the ICA in Boston.  Unfortunately I missed Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective at the Guggenheim last year. In anticipation of hitting the beach in Delray later this week (April vacation), here are a sampling of beach portraits, starting with my favorite, which has always reminded me of my younger self.

  1. I have also loved this portrait series for years. Vulnerable and rebellious.

What's your style?
