Charlotte Hooij is a photography student at the LUCA School of Arts in Brussels. This is her first ever photo series from Rotterdam:
What are pictures? We get confronted with photos day in, day out, but have you ever thought about what you truly see? Have you ever considered if what you see is reality or just a translation of reality by the photographer?Is that man sitting in the cafe by himself all alone or just looking for a moment of rest during one of those busy office days? I can sell my story as if that man is the loneliest man on earth or as the busiest man on the planet, looking for some time to escape.That's why I don’t want to tell you my reason for making this series. I want you to make up your own story because, eventually, that will be as true as mine.
