For many centuries the individual face was not important in art. It was not until the beginning of the 14th century that people began to perceive man as an individual and to make his physiognomy more and more expressive. Later, in the 19th century, the development of photographic art made it possible to depict the human face authentically differentiated at a certain moment and to present it as a photograph in all its shades. The faces that Hillert Ibbeken has collected reflect the whole of life: Joy, sorrow, loneliness, illness, old age, youth seduction, rejection, sadness, arrogance. The essence of each personality reveals itself to us and we recognize ourselves.
