Pictures of a young couple in which the man as well as the woman is played by the artist herself.
Jack & Jill, a – pretty stereotypical – young couple, stuck in traditional gender roles. Jack’s a cute guy trying to be macho sometimes but really isn’t. He’s also a bit lazy. Jill is a modern woman, who likes shopping, reading chicklit and spending time with friends. She often tells Jack to get his lazy ass of the couch and help her with the household, but, she loves him very much!
Corrine Bot will go on taking pictures of Jack & Jill when they’re old and grey, so be prepared for a Jack & Jill in their eighties snapshot! Jack & Jill, collect them all!
