In an interview with lifestyle magazine LINDA. Gemmy Woud-Binnendijk says it felt like “great appreciation” that the royal family approached her to photograph Princess Beatrix and create the three-generation portraits in honor of this festive occasion.

“It was very special for me both artistically and personally to be able to capture three generations of royalty in this beautiful way,” Gemmy tells LINDA. “Finding the right balance between portraying the three members of the royal family powerfully on the one hand, and on the other hand the unity they form as a family. That is very important to me. This in combination with appropriate colors, light and composition.”

Gemmy Woud-Binnendijk draws inspiration for her work from the old masters.
