In 2013 I’ve been starting photographing Bradley at the age of 7. At that time he lived with his parents and his sister on a campsite in the Netherlands. May 2015 they left for Spain and they’re still living there. Every year I’m leaving the Netherlands to live together with the family and to photograph Bradley: https://wilmarekkers.nl/?portfolio=fort-oranje
‘Home and the Heartland’
In 2015 I started traveling alone. By traveling I am connected to myself and my environment. The base of this project about a personal process and story ‘Home and the Heartland’.
Project ‘Beppie & Roxanna’
I’ve been in contact with Beppie since 2012. Although she is at peace with her personal history, that same history has made her distrustful to society. Nowadays Beppie (56) lives alone in her apartment in Tilburg (The Netherlands). She only trust her family which means everything to her. Especially her grandchildren and in particular Roxanna. Beppie: ”I recognize myself in her and I will do whatever I can to protect her”. More about Beppie & Roxanna: https://wilmarekkers.nl/?portfolio=1837
