Kintsugi “The art of broken pieces” a collaboration with Annette Collomb of A.C Photography.

“Kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) is a Japanese method for repairing broken ceramics with a special lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum. The philosophy behind the technique is to recognize the history of the object and to visibly incorporate the repair into the new piece instead of disguising it. The process usually results in something more beautiful than the original.”** 

Working with Annette Collomb was a nice experience since she keeps a really relaxed ambiance in the studio which also matches the theme! The art of Kintsugi spoke to me because I feel like we human are also the art of Kintsugi. During our life we break and build up. All the experiences we have in life makes who we become. Everyones story has something special and makes the beauty of you. Don’t hide yourself, but show who you are.

In both my galleries you are able to find pictures of this photoshoot. I hope you all like them, cause I do!

Lots of love,

L.R.Wijngaarde
