In the Pines

On top you can see a so called 'triptych'. Under the triptych you'll notice that those 3 shots are shown individually. I made these three pictures during a shoot in a little forest called 'De Braakman', and it's close to my hometown, Terneuzen. It had snowed a couple of days before, when February just started in 2012. During this period, I was kind of into Nirvana and they had covered a song on their MTV Unplugged dvd. That song was of Leadbelly, and it was called 'In the Pines'. Walking through this cold forest, I got the idea that these images somehow matched the cold and isolated atmosphere also apparent in the song. A little bit of the song goes like:

Black girl, black girl, where will you go
Im going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, In the pines, Where the sun never shine
I will shiver the whole night through.
