commissioned by the schorer foundation, the gay and lesbian advisory organization in amsterdam, poseuses collects gon buurman's portraits of queer women, sometimes alone, sometimes as couples. warm and affecting, poseuses captures a certain time and certain place while retaining something timeless. "you can see poseuses as a visual commentary on conventional and normative reality. the camera is focused on female appearance and sexual identity. in an assault that is partly analytical, partly playful and partly satirical, convention itself is the target."
