GiesenLeenders is a dutch photographers duo: Maurits Giesen (1975) & Ilse Leenders (1979). For “Mimicry” we had the idea that the characters were hiding for something or someone. We came up with all kinds of situations where it was desirable for the characters (are they detectives, smugglers or…?) to blend within their environment. So for each image we had a scenario in mind, but kept it open for the viewers imagination, what kind of characters they are precisely or what they’re hiding for.
