About the artist:

Gerard Petrus Fieret (1924 – 2009) has created some of the strangest and most subversive works produced in Europe in the 1960s and '70s. Fieret was self-taught, and between 1965 – the year he acquired his first camera, a Praktiflex – and the end of the 1970s he was an obsessional and insatiable photographer, taking pictures of anything and everything: women, legs, children, shop windows, street scenes, himself, and more women. Through his photographs, as through a two-way mirror, he achieved the paradox of revealing himself and asserting his presence in the world by hiding behind a camera.
