Paulien Oltheten travels to cities around the world, taking photographs and videos of people she encounters in public places, seeking to capture, as she writes, how they “stand, hang around, stagger, lean, slouch, push and pull in the world around them.” Fascinated by the idiosyncratic gestures of the people she observes, Oltheten approaches individuals whose body language piques her attention and asks them to repeat their movement so she can record it. Her work is a cross between staged performance and documentary street photography.
