Introduction Nature's smile in English, Dutch and Italian

The images in Nature's Smile show the everyday interference of nature in our daily environment in a surprising, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, sometimes delightful way. With powerful images Jacinta Holtslag shows us the picturesque stratification of impermanence.

"Nature's Smile makes you look at fungus, rust, rot, weeds and disintegration in a new way. They turn out to be the creators of a whole new universe."
- Lonneke Kok, art journalist, Amsterdam

De foto’s in Nature’s Smile tonen op verrassende, soms grappige, soms ontroerende, soms oogstrelende wijze de alledaagse inmenging van de natuur in onze directe leefomgeving. Met krachtige beelden laat Jacinta Holtslag de schilderachtige gelaagdheid van vergankelijkheid zien.

‘De fotoserie Nature’s Smile laat je op een nieuwe manier kijken naar schimmel, roest, verrotting, onkruid en verwering. Zij blijken de grote scheppers van een heel nieuw universum.’
Lonneke Kok, kunstjournalist te Amsterdam

Le foto in Nature's Smile mostrano in modo sorprendente la presenza della natura nella nostro ambiente quotidiano, con immagini a volte divertenti, a volte commoventi, a volte così belle. Con straordinarie immagini Jacinta Holtslag ci mostra la stimolante interpretazione della realtà.

“La serie di Nature's Smile ti fa guardare alla ruggine, alla muffa, alle erbacce, agli agenti atmosferici in modo nuovo. Questi elementi sembrano divenire i soggetti di un universo del tutto nuovo”.
- Lonneke Kok, giornalista d’arte di Amsterdam
