Awarded dutch portrait photographer Koos Breukel (192) takes his intense portraits with large format cameras. The result is a dark and often confronting. He photographs everyone from children and students to writers, yachtsmen and transsexuals. Last year he created the first official portrait photographs of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. In his work Breukel explores where people stand in life and how they cope with the traces that life has left behind.
