Fashion is a concept that represents what is trending at the moment Paul Kooikers fashion photography on the other hand is characterised by its timelessness The artist portrays the biggest fashion brands and todays most famous faces but transports them to a world of their own Disconnected from time and place his surreal images feel like film stills with stories we can only guess

His photography transcends classic gender roles his models adopt unusual poses and their faces are often left out of frame obscuring their identity At times it is not even clear whether the subject is human or a doll In order to capture the extravagance of luxury objects Kooiker magnifies its means of pre_sen_tation like for example mannequins and displays to such a degree that it is ultimately our desire itself that is captured by his camera

Over the span of 10 chapters he endeavors to articulate his perspective on fashion This commissioned work bearing the same title was showcased prominently in a solo exhibition at the Museum Folkwang Essen in 2021 and at Foam Amsterdam in 2022
