This chronological collection begins in 1936, when a 16 year old Dutch girl [Ria van Djik] picks up a gun and shoots at the target in a fairground shooting gallery. Every time she hits the target, it triggers the shutter of a camera, and a portrait of a girl in firing pose is taken and given as a prize. This series documents almost every year of the woman’s life up until present times, where at the age of 88 the woman still makes her pilgrimage to the Shooting Gallery.
