Finally. One of our favourite photographs for years is finally ours. As if it has always been there, a very natural part of the office. Thank you Jan Hoek for making this picture. Thank you Meier Boersma for being a friendly yet persuasive sales agent.
We were initially drawn to this photo because of the text that accompanied the picture in a magazine: ‘The dog, I saw it on a bike with its owner. I really wanted to photograph this dog, but the owner wanted to have sex with me. So I had to make a thousand nude pictures, before I could make this one picture of the dog.’ Art is suffering, though we would like to experience it that someone would rather have sex with us than be filmed by us.
