Hester Scheurwater on Sincerely Not Yours:

With “Sincerely Not Yours” I portrayed women who responded to my call to pose for my camera. I wanted to show these women, who have an affinity with my drive and work, in their im|perfection nakedness. I have tried to express their strength in my photos. With these images I provide a visual commentary on a dull of women in the media.

My ambivalence towards that image of women as an object is central to this. In “Sincerely Not Yours” the imperfect has sometimes become perfect. That is why I “signed” this pamphlet, this visual letter in public space, with a series of confronting self-portraits. The distribution of hundreds of postcards, stickers, zines, and posters in the public space is part of this letter as a visual pamphlet “Sincerely Not Yours”. 

Sincerely Not Yours, 
Hester Scheurwater 

In this solo exhibition, Hester Scheurwater shows a selection of photos that were previously distributed as a visual pamphlet: “Sincerely Not Yours”. 

“Sincerely Not Yours” was realized with an R&D subsidy from the CBK Rotterdam.
