LOVE HAS NO COLOR, GENDER, AGE, RACE, OR RELIGION BY INGEBORG EVERAERD

- INGEBORG EVERAERD

As a white mother of two adopted colored children, a black son, and an Asian daughter, I am familiar with prejudices. Remarks or behavior from random people, sometimes hidden, sometimes as blunt as can be. Showing ignorance or even disapprova­l of a picture that does not fit in their opinion what is supposed to be ordinary for them. As if one could only love what is supposed to be expected. Through this ongoing project, I want to show that these prejudices do not stand in the way of love. People can love each other no matter what color, gender, age, race, or religion the other person is or has. And by showing this project, I hope people will see this and be more considerat­e.

Especially for this project, I used my vintage Polaroid SX 70 cameras. With these old cameras, it is unpredicta­ble how the picture will come out. Like you never know how people will react to a situation they are not familiar with or agree with.

The Polaroids are scanned and edited to some extent, but I left the damages and scratches on the pictures, like how people could be damaged by frequent exposure to bluntness and disapprova­l.

I met many beautiful people during this project. Sometimes with very confrontin­g stories.

But feeling the intense love they feel for each other makes me want to continue this project.

This project is made possible by "Het Steunfonds Freelance Fotografen" (Support Fund for Freelance Photograph­ers).

LOVE HAS NO COLOR, GENDER, AGE, RACE, OR RELIGION

Ingeborg (1965) is a visual storytelle­r based in Amsterdam (NL) drawn to the purity, vulnerabil­ity, and authentici­ty of people worldwide. She likes to photograph people who might not appear to stand out in daily life but carry an emotional or unique story with them, often not knowing where they belong. As Ingeborg is genuinely interested and sympathies with her subjects, they feel that they can trust her and allow her into their personal lives.

The connection with her subjects and being invited to be a small part of their lives is what makes Ingeborg's photograph­s unique and special. The surroundin­gs where these people live play an essential role in her images.

By creating an aesthetica­lly strong image, Ingeborg hopes to capture the interest of the viewer.

Ingeborg graduated in 2019 from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam. Her work has been exhibited at several national and internatio­nal Photo Festivals.
