Hester Scheurwater became known for her special photographic self-portraits. With her iPhone she photographs herself wherever she can: in the living room, half under a bed or squatting on a mirror. Photos of her vagina, partly covered behind pantyhose or with a hand, in the most revealing poses, confirm the stereotype of the woman as an object of lust. Only this time not through the eyes of another, but through their own eyes and the lenses. Due to their explicit nature, Scheurwater’s images were frequently removed from Facebook. Many people also criticized the fact that, as a mother of young children, she made this kind of art. Scheurwater's work disrupts - which is good. Incidentally, she has done more exciting things. For example, as part of her Wild Beamen project (ed.: Projecting in the Wild), she projected images of her body on buildings.
