Over het boek
Michel Mees is founder and member of the Haagsch Stereografisch Genootschap. In this book he shows a series of portraits he made between 2010 and 2012.
All portraits are in fact a combination of two different exposures from different angles. Together they form an anaglyph. When wearing red / cyan glasses you will experience real depth in the faces.
It's more than a picture, it's like meeting the people in person.
Michel Mees (Drunen, 1969) has been dragging his camera bags to nightclubs, hotels and palaces for more than two decades now. Palaces you said? Yep. That’s where this versatile photographer from The Hague found His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard in front of his lens. “ It’s one of the advantages of being a photographer”, Mees smiles. “You go through doors that remain closed for others”. Music being his big love it was hardly surprising Michel Mees started his career pressed against the edge of local concerthall stages, making snapshots of new bands. While still attending the Royal Academy of Art, his phone started ringing with offers of work. Magazines were keen to pick up this talented dude from The Hague. Since then Michel Mees has snapped his shutter in front of hundreds of dj’s & musicians, including Armin van Buuren, Alice Cooper and Tiësto. For a good portrait he travels as far as Uzbekistan.
