    Paul Blanca (1954/58), official name Paul Vlaswinkel, is a Dutch artist (art photographer) who had a breakthrough in the early 80s of the last century with his confrontational violent self-portraits influenced by the American photographers Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) and Andres Serrano (1950). The self-taught Blanca came into touch with the artscene when he met Eva Veldhoen, the daughter of the well-known Dutch painter Aat Veldhoen (1934). The acquaintance with this artistic environment was a real eye-opener for Blanca and shortly after he started photographing, first in color with a small screen camera but very soon after shooting in B&W using a Hasselblad camera (6 X 6 cm).

    In 1980 he was introduced to the world-famous choreographer Hans van Manen (1932), who is a meritorious photographer himself and had a photo studio. Besides their mutual interest in photography, Van Manen also used Blanca in one of his dance choreographies called Pose in which Blanca performed as a kick-boxer, he was a practitioner of this full-contact sport from the age of 16, surrounded by ballerina’s.

    Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) who was a close friend of Van Manen was very impressed by Blanca’s self-portraits and later introduced him to New York’s high society (like Keith Haring, Willem de Kooning, Japser Johns, Grace Jones…etc.) stating ‘Paul Blanca is my only competitor’. The art collector Bill Katz says in Anthony Haden Guest’s True Colors – The Real Life of the Art World on Blanca: “…he reaches a kind of poetry few artists have”.

    Most of Blanca’s self-portraits deal with strong emotions and violent themes like fear, sadness, pain, agression and sexuality exploring his inner demons. Diametrically against this harsh work, there are the sensitive and gentle pictures like the one called Mother and Son (Mapplethorpe’s favourite) depicting himself in a tender embrace with his mother, both fully naked, or the portrait holding his newborn son in the air called Father and Son.

    In 1986 Blanca worked on a book called Timing (edition of 1000) which featured the upcoming Dutch artists of the eighties and his photographs were accompanied by poems of Koos Dalstra (1950). For his touching series Par la Pluie des Femmes (1989) he asked his female models to think of their most traumatic experiences. Together with Hans Gieles and Francis Boeske of the gallery Vous Etes Ici he produced the magnificent Sangre de Toro series in 1991 (see ‘Blood of the Bull’ below).

    During this time Blanca also started as a research-journalist for the Amsterdam weekly, Nieuwe Revu and the newspaper Het Parool. He wrote about crack and again exploring his own boundaries he started to use it himself, resulting in an addiction. His article for Nieuwe Revu on weapons was the starting point of a downward spiral with him being a suspect in the assault on Rob Scholte in 1995 because of his “knowledge” of grenades. There was a long silence but in 2008 Blanca returned with a project called Mi Mattes in which he photographed gangmembers hanging around his studio.

    Of late, the trend in the fashion world shows beautiful young female models of Asia emerging in an unprecedented rate. Female Models from the diverse locations of Asia such as Japan, Taiwan, India, China, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Pakistan, Afganistan, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Thailand and other locations of Asia are seen in popular advertisement campaigns of commercial and non-commercial entities across the world. This growing significance of the young and beautiful female models from these regions is the result of the new paradigm shift in market capitalization. The Asian region, especially the India and China factor alone constitutes the major chunk of the world population. This entails the major market participation of the region in the commercial operations which are going on and which are yet to come. Economic pundits and industry experts are of the view that in the coming phase of development in the world, the major growth pace will take place in the Asian region. As result, major business brands of the world are vying with each other to grab a bigger share of the pie through product positioning and aggressive market aggrandizement via publicity blitzkrieg and other stratagems.

    As part of beautiful young female models of Asia emerging in fashion world, there is an upsurge in the modeling industry in India. In India the modeling industry is closely linked with the film industry. Hence, most of the leading models are film stars. Take for example the case of the leading Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai. Aishwarya has been at the helm of the show business in India for several years now. She has starred in many Bollywood blockbusters. She is married to the son of the all-time Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan. Her husband Abhishek Bachchan is a film star in his own part. This trio has figured in some films. In the modeling industry also this family trio has a considerable stake. A resent industry source release claims that Aishwarya Rai alone signs up for an average INR 100 crore modeling contract annually. Apart from the Bachchan family and Aishwarya Rai in particular, there are other Female actresses of Hindi and regional language films who figure in modeling industry.

    I have stated that it is an acceptable fact that beautiful young of Asia emerge in the fashion world today. Bollywood actresses Sushmita Sen, the erstwhile Miss Universe (Aishwarya Rai is in her stand a former Miss World!), Vidya Balan, Karishma Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka chopra, Asin Thottumkal and a whole host of Indian actresses are active in fashion modeling.This is an inevitable development and it is essential to sustain market capitalization.It is sheer commonsense on the part of marketing and advertisement agencies to rope in regional fashion models to endorse for the products and thereby easily win the consumer preference.
