About the photographer, Gerard Petrus FIERET (1924-2009)
In the Netherlands he is considered a pioneer of photography as a form of autonomous visual art. Although his photographic activities were concentrated on a period of only ten years (1965-1975) without interruption, Gerard Petrus FIERET created an enormous oeuvre. This outstanding photographer was an obsessive recorder of everything that came his way: people, animals, street scenes, and himself. Most of all, he loved women - models, students, young mothers, dancers, and waitresses - or just body parts like Photographing breasts, feet or long legs isolated.
