Portrait of Queen Beatrix

Stephan Vanfleteren photographed one hundred Dutch people in 1999 for the  ‘Buren/Neighbours’ project, as commissioned by the Rijksmuseum and NRC. Young and old, black and white, rich and poor: he photographed them all in an identical manner in order to create a small sample of the Netherlands. One of the hundred Dutch people was Queen Beatrix. This portrait will be on show again until 17 March in the Rijksmuseum, along with twenty other photographs from the series.
