BredaPhoto’s theme YOU is about the individual that adapts to and behaves in a changing society that increasingly cares less for people. The theme of Maesen’s work is the opposite of this: it is about the aspects of the human condition that are not – or little – under the influence of social change. Intimacy, lust and desire are elements in man which have always been there and will always be there. Where individual feelings do not count in the whole of society, lust and desires are an important part of human life. If not in the perception, then at least in fantasy. That may be taking ‘violent’ proportions.
