In the choice for photo-models one can contact a model-agency but in-line with the nature of her jewellery Yvonne de Wit prefers to work with ‘ordinary’ people. This is a challenge for all involved; especially the model. No make-up (only natural hair-wax) and no studio-photography … However white cheese-cloth was used to filter the background light and some additional reflector lights were installed for accents. Only a few pictures in full colour and the rest in Black & White. The materials (sterling silver, soil particles and gems) are sourced from the South African Earth.
Model: Mary (a wonderful neighbour and mother of 3 grown-ups)
