Just Kids by Sven Signe den Hartogh

A KALTBLUT exclusive. This serie was inspired on the book by Patti Smith: Just Kids. “Both my girlfriend and myself are so inspired by the work of Patti Smith and Robbert Mapplethorpe that somehow we had to translate all this inspiration from the book into work ourselves. Locked inside our own world, as if the day lasted forever. We created this intimate self-portrait of ourselves. All the images are shot and created ourselves using a lot of mirrors and a self-timer.” says Sven Signe den Hartogh. 

Just Kids recounts the friendship of two young
artists – Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe – whose passion fueled
their lifelong pursuit of art.
