My work got selected for the Zomerexpo 2017! Yihaa!
Three works from the series ‘Hide and Seek’ are on show in museum de Fundatie in Zwolle.
The theme of the exhibition is ‘water’ and it is really nice to wander through all the different water worlds.
So catch a wave to Zwolle and visit museum de Fundatie, the show is on till August 31st 2017.
My series ‘Hide and Seek’ is now on show at cafe Kopi Susu. It’s a cultural cafe in Lombok, Utrecht. Where you can enjoy nice coffee, Portuguese tapas and Indonesian snacks. The exhibition is up until January 4th 2017.
Kopi Susu, J.P. Coenstraat 69, 3531 EP Utrecht
There was an article in the dutch newspaper ‘Algemeen Dagblad/Utrechts Nieuwsblad’ about the exhibition. 😀
I shot the new autumn/winter collection for M!DS by Iva Jankovic.
With the beautiful Lena and Anna.
The label M!DS artwear is designed and made by Iva Jankovic, she works with natural fibers such as linnen, cotton and viscose.
You can check out, try and buy her designs at Puha in Utrecht.
In March/April 2017 I travelled to Bangladesh to make several photo reportages.
One of the things that amazed me were the man with orange beards that I saw on the street.
I decided to walk through Old Dhaka and ask every single man with an orange beard if I could take a picture of him.
When I asked why they dyed their hair, most said because of Prophet Muhammed. Who is believed to have dyed his hair with henna as well. And some said as a first reason because they think it’s beautiful.
Islam is the largest religion in Bangladesh. 90% of the population is Muslim. And although I have traveled to other Muslim countries I have never seen men who dyed their beards with henna. It made the already colorful streets of Old Dhaka even more colorful.
With big thanks to Maleeha Hafiz for being my translator in Dhaka.
This series I photographed for Draagbaar. They have a hairsalon and conceptstore in Amsterdam-East.
The idea for this series is androgeny: nice bowlcuts and crisp white shirts.
With this series we participated with the Coiffure Awards 2016!
If you would like to see the pics bigger, go visit Draagbaar at Sumatrastraat 54 in Amsterdam!
