WILLEMIEKE KARS

For the work 'Looking at the other' I used photography to be able to look at people and long for them to look back at me. I got myself photographed by hundreds of people in the New York subway. By asking them to take a picture of me: i forced my fellow traveler to look at me in the hope that this would give me the right to exist. The title of the photo is the description of my fellow traveler who took my portrait.
