_LEDA AND THE SWAN

Esther van Waalwijk works together with Hanneke Wetzer for the project Leda and the Swan.
The work is a free interpretation of the equally named Greek myth.


In this project, pictures taken from van Waalwijk’s antique camera, face a photographic mosaic of snapshots taken with an iPhone of the performance 'walking the swan'.
Also the chosen setting brings contrasts; the silence of the portrait studio against the tumultuous surroundings of the city Eindhoven.
