In the photo book, “In almost every picture #7,” a Dutch woman’s life is documented through the lens of a shooting gallery camera. Every year starting in 1936, Ria van Dijk made her pilgrimage to a shooting gallery where she picked up a gun and shot a target, triggering the shutter of a camera to take per portrait in her firing pose. Not only do we see her evolution from teenager to octogenarian, but we catch a glimpse of the changing times in the fashions and faces of those around her.
