Leonce en Lena
poster for Zuidelijk Toneel Globe, 1979
Leonce and Lena are in love, but because their families hate each other, their love cannot blossom. Their sorrow is so great that they go out into the world disappointed and masked. However, as you can imagine, they bump into each other again and although they don’t recognise each other, the same chemistry makes them fall in love with each other once more. I asked Lena if, during the photo shoot, she could ‘work on’ Leonce so that he would get the feeling she wanted more than just to take a photo. She kept her word and I got what I wanted. It was his first job as a model. How lucky can you get?
