Hellen van Meene Photograph
?The central theme in my work is photographing girls who are at the point of budding into maturity. Girls who are in that stage of their lives in which they become a woman. This theme actually came about quite spontaneously and almost intuitively. It stays close to myself. I can relate to them, I understand them better, I see in them what I once was. Their attitude is still open; they are not really committed yet, they are still playful and open-minded, they still have this touching susceptibility, they are still themselves.”?Hellen van Meene, in Hellen van Meene: Japan Series (Verlag Der Buchhandlung Walther Konig, 2002)
