Portraits of the lawyer and his wife
Photography, 2 x (70 x 52 cm).
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7491_M343).
On the request of a lawyer and his wife, Bratkov took a portrait of the lawyer and his dog in his office. The photo is a reference to classic portraiture, in which important individuals were often portrayed in a similarly stylish interior. At a later stage, Bratkov added to this picture another photo of the same interior, but this time a drunk woman is posing in the office, holding a gun. Half 'real', half staged, Bratkov reminds us with this series of the fact that every portrait photo is a miniature piece of theatre.
