Unseen photo fair, Amsterdam

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.


  Don’t missed this magical and charming kids bookshop with a hand picked, wide collection of books for kids and youth. Recently they opened an extra floor below with equally charming and unique toys and gifts. One of my top ten !

The Takiyaje world

The works of Nalogina Lubov are nothing less than stunning. Her imagination and the detailed work is an invitation to dive into her fabulous world.   +Sorry my dear friends for not participating in the last “drawing challenge.” As you probably noticed I had some technical problems on my blog (as well on my computer) flexed only this morning. Thank you for bringing this to my attention ..:-)
