    Bottom up


    Bottom Up produces alienating images and leaves the viewer with questions. Who are behind these photos? Not much can be read from their backside alone. Of course, they are nimble. And sufficiently balanced. But to what extent does this say anything about their personal life? Westerhuis likes to get his models out of their comfort zone. By adding elements or asking for certain attitudes. In this case, the photos challenge the viewer to look from a different perspective. The series defies our views on the nude and shows us that the beauty of a body can also be shown in a different way.
