Using the name of artwork by Dutch masters I re-appropriated them for these portraits taken at The Old Stone House, a dutch colonial house in Brooklyn. The house existed at the same time as the height of the Dutch Golden age. In these images I want to find ways to intersect points in history with my being as a woman of color from New York City.
