This must be one of the most magical family time-lapse videos. Ever.
Daddy and Dutch artist, Frans Hoffmeester, filmed his firstborn girl, Lotte each week of her fourteen years on the planet. The beautiful video, a collection of ’15 seconds clips’, shows how her image developed, how her looks and personality changed, and what she looks like now.
This ongoing ‘Coming of Age’ project by Utrecht-based Frans, has seen him become an internet superstar. There are twenty-nine million hits on his ‘Portrait of Lotte’ and he has decided to continue to video his daughter into adulthood.
