Erik Kessels – In Almost Every Picture 7: Shooting Gallery Updated
In almost every picture #7 presents with the story of a Dutch woman whose life is seen from the point of view of a fairground shooting gallery.
The chronological series begins in 1936, when a 16 year old girl from Tilburg in Holland picks up a gun and shoots at the target in a shooting gallery. Every time she hits the target, it triggers the shutter of a camera and a portrait of the girl in firing pose is taken and given as a prize. And so a lifelong love affair with the shooting gallery begins.
This series documents almost every year of the woman's life (there is a conspicuous pause from 1939 to 1945) up until present times.
