Series: Nude From left to right: Paragon, Prodigy, Phenomenon "Nude" focuses on the earliest process of coloured photos developed by Kodak, named "Ektacolor Normal". With a Vietnamese background and adopted by Dutch parents, viewing photographs of my relatives, I noticed that the colour of their skin was not 'real'. Apparently, it was not possible to show colours of people in a colour photograph. The photographic material - which consists of three layers of colour: red, green, and blue - was developed in a way that only white people were represented naturally. By separating the layers of emulsion in a chemical way, I made the colours brown, red, and yellow, visible. These colours are essential in creating life-like skin colours. The 3 colours are presented autonomously and in life size (association with human body)
