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. This is one of the images taken during the shoot on 2010-04-27. Don’t miss the separate collection of my personal favorites of the shoot.

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.
