Portrait of Lotte (0 to 16 years in 4.5 min.)
You are witness to one of the most mysterious, profound processes of human life – aging, the process of becoming older and growing up – accelerated into 4 ½ minutes.
Dutch artist Frans Hofmeester has filmed his now teenage daughter’s portrait for 15 seconds every week from the day she was born.
The new edit 0 to 18 years will be published in november 2017!
Video by: Hofmeester
On the 28th of October 2015 Lotte turned 16 years old.
This ultimate coming of age time lapse shows Lotte transform from baby to teenager.

Frans Hofmeester speaking:
“Why did I decide to do the project? When Lotte was born, she was changing at such a rapid pace, and I was desperate to keep the memories intact. As any parent knows, the difference between a child at two days old and two months old is startling. When Vince was born, I started filming him too. Other people might make a photo book, but I decided to film. This is the most photographed and filmed generation ever, but what are we actually doing with these pictures? They just sit in a file on the computer. I wanted to try and convey the essence of my children, of how they look to me. We don’t often look at the photographs we take, not in the same way that an artist would look at his paintings.”
