A few weeks ago I went to “Unseen”. This photo fair was a four days celebration of inspiration and talent at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. Galleries from all around the world presented their work. I was overwhelmed by the diversity of ideas, techniques and subjects of photographers. Close to my heart was were the collages with different materials integrated such as paper and threads. Till next year! The thread works are by the amazing Julie Cockburn. The tower in the photo is a real tower (!) in Hong Kong. The big portraits on the floor and walls are a part of this.
A few months ago I received a very exciting mail send by the lovely Séverine Gallardo from Edition Marguerite Waknine, a french publishing house specialized in contemporary art. They were interested in publishing a book about my art work. I can’t say enough how happy and honored I feel. It was a very interesting process of collecting and choosing the suitable work. After all these weeks of preparations, here it is: A beautiful new handsome book! You can check their site for more details and look around to see their other exciting books!
