Photographer Milan Gies exhibits in Bastion Oranje during the FotoFestival Naarden: “Vulnerability is the universal but also sensitive theme of my work.”
Rien is one the first models with whom Milan worked together for a longer period. Milan had a side job as a cab driver when he met Rien, who was homeless. Milan was fascinated by the way Riens body was literary marked by life. He made portraits of Rien several times, which ended suddenly after 6 months as Rien unexpectedly passed away.
