Rosa on facebook | Photography © 2010 Marjolein Katsma
Rosa Albarrán is a fashion designer, originally from Mexico, who has lived in Amsterdam for many years now. Lately she’s been designing and making a lot of hats. She asked me to photograph some of them, with both her and her daughter Claudia modeling – for a bit of mutual promotion – and I gladly agreed.
Her designs are always ‘outside the box’ and often humorous. Here are my personal favorites of the shoot. (Other shots will be uploaded later to give Rosa and her friends the opportunity to view them all and order prints.)
About this hat:
Narrow ribbons of a material made from palm leaf were first sewn together to form a broad band, which was then curled up to make this hat.
For nearly every shot I made a separate ‘card’ version to control the crop, since most shots are already closely framed.
