An engaging portrait of three Walcheren girls, made around 1925.
The portrait has been restored and coloured in muted tones. Their white starched hoods contrast freshly with the background.
My eye caught the composition of the picture and the somewhat subdued, timid look of the girls.
The small Walcheren cap was only worn from about 12-14 years old. Before that, girls wore a long cap that had names such as staertmusse, pauwestaert, bultmusse and snowdropmusse, depending on the village and sometimes slight differences in the model and make-up.
Some adult women from Middelburg continued to wear this hat, but with the hair in a roll above the forehead, as adult Walcheren women do.
Girls wore the hair in two flat twists.

Jankees Goud, connoisseur of Zeeland costumes told me the following anecdote:
'One of the women I spoke to who wore this as a child said: but we were just kids eh, hat or not, we also just rolled off the dike. Mother did always say 'careful with your musse ey!' We were just kids!. And grandma was mad as we handed over another basket with dirty hoods... because even at skipping rope and other games the bonnet got a beating. A muddied rope against it or something. Apparently grandmother kept the girls' hats clean and starched'.

A beautiful portrait to have printed, for example on Art Frame or modern matte on dibond or behind Plexiglas

Real encounters with people all over the world have attracted me from childhood. Traveling uninhibitedly unknown countries and continents and making contact with their residents. Those contacts with people in other parts of the world have taught me that the basic emotions of all people are the same. Unknown makes unloved? No, unknown makes me 'curious' about 'that other', the unknown. Establishing contact with people whose language I often do not speak has led to beautiful photos in which mutual respect is expressed and where barriers are eliminated by that contact. You will find some selected photos from my large collection on this site.

In my opinion, open, interpersonal contact is always possible, no matter how different the circumstances of those unknown people and their culture may be. My travels have also led to a special project: the collection of discarded glasses in the Netherlands and other Western countries and the distribution thereof to people in other places in the world who, due to circumstances, cannot get their glasses.
Just Google for 'brillen voor zanskar' and you will see how something as simple as that project brings people together.
