Monique & Angel horse Felipe

Ten years ago I worked on a photo book about a children’s hospital. Monique was a very brave 11 years old girl who just had her leg amputated. She was a very good gymnastic so she wanted to be photographed on the bridge. Flying as an angel … Now I work for the Dutch cancer institute KWF and had the idea to portray her and some kids again. On a misty cold early morning we took this picture with Monique now 20 years, with angel horse Felipe.

Monique: ‘I’m doing very well. I will go this summer to Africa,  helping with volunteers to build up new schools in little villages.’
