Robert van der Hilst - Chinese Interiors

Robert van der Hilst :
I have trouble talking about my photography - good photographs talk for themselves and I am always surprised to read write-ups about my photography - the things people can see in my images!

But I can say one thing - I am looking for total silence in my photographs, immobility, there where nothing moves anymore, all is serene and still - the so called "decisive moment" is a term that I do not understand. Especially, now working for the past 4 years on "interiors", my images are very much composed and as if being set up, arranged.Using the inhabitants as my "actors", their habitat becoming a theater, I try to cross the threshold of their inner selves. In these series of "Cuban interiors" and now
"Chinese interiors" I try not only to photograph the interior of the room but more importantly, the interior of man.
