…..”Sisters and Daughters” since the two girls are clearly very close, but also because they’re always seen through the lens (and perspective) of a loving mother – Nathalie Martens. I’d searched for the girls’ names on her two Facebook profiles, but in the end I was going to make an informed guess that the two named girls in the video I published in a previous post (see also for links to Nathalie and her photographic studio – Sproetjes & Zoo) were her daughters – and then I found a caption to the penultimate image in my gallery that confirmed it: “Portret Nanou & Fee”…..

You’ll notice that some of the images include the girls’ bare chests: the Belgians and Dutch are similar to the Spanish and Russians in this part of their culture: little girls’ flat chests are exactly the same as boys’ – and don’t need to be covered up if not necessary. Also, I think it’s a joke in the image where the two of them seem to be getting the photographic studio’s logo tattooed on their forearms…..

Here they are with their mother, followed by one of just Nathalie herself: a young mother (with a very (photographically) involved husband, Laurent Proot):
