A Profound Portrait of a Young Girl’s Childhood

This video portrait of a bright and animated child from the age of 0 to 20 years, highlights some of the profound physical and psychological changes that occur during that time period. It takes a lot of work to get through those years undamaged.

Note that in 2012 an earlier Al Fin blog posted a video of the same girl (Lotte Hofmeester) over the time span of 0 to 12 years of life. The later video above includes her entire childhood, adding significant insight into the developmental process.

For a father to have the energy, persistence, and love to capture such a video record — and for a daughter to tolerate it over that age span — reveals a father-daughter relationship that is all too rare.
