Portraits made by Marie Louise Nijsing, photographer in Nuenen. The village where Vincent van Gogh lived in 1883-1885 and where he painted “The Potato Eaters”, a farmer's family where the women wear bonnets (poffers). These poffers are a part of the cultural heritage of Brabant. This traditional costume piece inspired Marie Louise to photograph modern day girls living in the same village wearing the (original) poffers from Vincent’s time. The series “100 Years Young” is currently on display in the Vincentre museum in Nuenen.
