Rineke Dijkstra

I know this photo series of Beach Portraits by Rineke Dijkstra are rather old but I think they are so beautiful. She makes subtle references through the body language and gestures of her subjects to iconic paintings in the Western art canon. I like that the images capture the awkward exchange between the subject and the photographer.
