Paper Boat

These seemingly paper hats, photographed here by Emilie Vercruysse, were made from printed cotton, reinforced with elasticated cloth. The concept is simple and is a nod to the Flemish children’s song: “Eén, twee, drie, vier, hoedje van, hoedje van, Eén, twee, drie, vier, hoedje van papier!” Paper hats and paper boats are obviously also traditional handicrafts, everyone has made one at some point. Kristof Buntinx made hats along these lines, which can actually be worn. He designed these hats for the celebrities from the world of the media, who in this way refer to their biotope. The photographer, who lives and works in Ghent, however, placed the hats on Bonnie’s head and by doing so takes us back to the playfulness of our childhood days. She primarily works with children and her colourful portraits are an authentic representation of the child’s soul.
