Gerard Fieret was an eccentric poet, painter and photographer who lived in The Hague. Between 1965 and 1975 he took hundreds of photos, mainly studies of women. Later, Fieret wandered the streets, fed the pigeons each day and kept his work in the freezer. His prints are creased and the edges frayed, with the occasional trace of pigeon droppings. On each photo, he signed his name in felt-tip pen and also furnished them with copyright stamps.
