Got a portfolio in Goedele Magazine this month, showing four previously unpublished photographs I took during my trips through the former USSR in 2007-2008. It's a funny issue about street photographers operating on beaches, on city squares in front of monuments, palmtrees or fountains. For a little money they make an instant portrait of you. They often use self made decor pieces, plastic flowers or stuffed animals.
The whole series contains about ten pictures. Some of them have been published in my book 'Red Journey'. Here are some more photographs of photographers at work:
From february 12 to march 12, 2010 a selection of photographs from 'Red Journey' will be exhibited at Lux Photo Gallery in Amsterdam. Opening will take place on friday february 12 between 5 and 7 pm. Many thanks to Lars Boering and Mirjam Boer for helping me organising this show!
