On top of a black and white photo of Jane Morris I superimposed a colour portrait of me, taken by Liselotte Fleur for the editorial about my work in Lone Wolf magazine.
Commemorating Jane Morris’ birthday as she was born on 19 October 1839, I posted this collage on my (recently started) Instagram and Facebook accounts. Doublechecking the date I suddenly realised there was another photograph of Jane Morris from the same series.
I might have always overlooked the image on the left as I was so smitten by the image in which Jane sits upright, full of self confience. Don’t you agree how this slight tilt of the head so drastically influences the way we perceive Jane?
I am proud to announce that Lone Wolf magazine, features an interview with me in their latest issue #12; ‘Philosopher and Muse’. The editorial ‘The Silent Muse’ is written by Natalia Borecka and photographed by Liselotte Fleur.
‘…Suddenly, a strange new prospect presented itself. Here was an opportunity to give someone pushed aside by history, the voice she so deserved. Here was a chance to give Jane her moment in the spotlight, not as a muse, but as a flesh and blood woman. And so, Margje set out out to turn a fading myth into a breathing story, using herself as Jane’s surrogate…’
While opening the envelope from the Fotomuseum Den Haag in 2011, the flyer for Julian Schnabels’ exhibition ‘Polaroids’ came out. Looking at it (right) I immediately associated it with this self-portrait I took back in the nineties, studying photography.
Julian Schnabels’ son became the second person I identified myself with. To my surprise, another double crossed my path (left). I would be thrilled if anyone could provide me with details about this unidentified girl!
