January 1- 31st: Femke Van Heugten

Femke, a photographer from Holland, returned to the Den after a year, still searching for the long lost love of Joe (above), a woman named Bertha who lived on Coney Island.  

A few days ago, after peeling back layers of information in public records and doing fieldwork in the streets of Brooklyn, Femke found evidence that Bertha is not listed as dead. Femke scoured Coney Island for Bertha, never knowing what she looked like.  The search continues...

Femke taught Rue (my daughter) how to use a polariod camera.  Here she is arranging objects on the table for the photo.
