Ferry van der Nat (Amsterdam) works with two cameras. The 1965 Polaroid Land Camera 103 sheds a greenish blue tint across the prints, seeming to distill an aura and mystery around the subjects. The second camera, the Polaroid Big Shot from 1975, is famously the same model used by Andy Warhol as he produced some of his most overtly sexual images—a mood that inspires Van der Nat’s own project.

The Muses

Like many photographers, Ferry van der Nat a handful of models he refers to as his muses. It's a mixture of chemistry that makes photoshoots just a bit more exciting. Three of them - Florian, Matthieu and Erik - are introduced by Ferry below. More in-depth information about these extraordinary men can be found in the book.

Mr. Florian

Florian was one of my very first muses. To me he looked exactly like a younger version of Alain Delon.

Mr. Erik

Erik walked into the studio and we looked at each other, and for no particular reason we both started laughing. From that moment I knew I was going to adopt him as my fashion-son.

“Ferry mostly seems to use the standard flash on his camera, and he uses it to great, smoothing effect.”

— Mr. Gert Jonker
Editor-in-Chief Fantastic Man
