In Almost Every Picture #7

In 1936, a 16-year-old Dutch girl from Tilburg in the Netherlands went to a shooting gallery. Hitting the target triggered a camera which took a picture of her at that exact moment. Her prize for a good shot was the picture.

Ria van Dijk, now 88, has gone back to the same shooting gallery every year since (except for an ominous pause from 1939 to 1945). Her new picture book, In Almost Every Picture #7, is a biography of this woman’s life told through these shooting gallery photos. A slideshow can be found at LensCulture by following the link below.

  1. What an interesting photo essay and to think it spans the life of the subject! I found myself thinking about the time spent between the yearly photos and think it would make an interesting read!
