‘Portrait of Lotte’ is an incredible time-lapse video that contains still and moving facial portraits of his beloved daughter Lotte, as captured by her photographer-father Frans Hofmeester. What’s special about this time-lapse video is that the material was recorded weekly over 14 years of Lotte’s life, beginning from the day of her birth.

Watching Portrait of Lotte, the viewer is treated to a captivating time-lapse that does a surprisingly good job at conveying changes not just in the girl’s appearance, but also in her personality. As the time-lapse goes by, you can sense Lotte’s growing maturity and increasingly complex personality.

Indeed Portrait of Lotte is not just a depiction of how people grow, but is a heart-warming tribute to a father’s bond with and affection for his daughter. It is a reminder to parents to cherish and soak in the time they spend with their children, as they won’t remain children forever.
