New work: Annual Report Maag Lever Darm Stichting

About two months ago, I was asked by Schrijf-Schrijf to take portraits for the annual report of the Maag Lever Darm Stichting (MLDS). The MLDS is an independent foundation that has been trying to prevent and to fight stomach, colon and liver diseases as well to provide information and support for people dealing these diseases, for the past 30 years. In order to do so they have been raising funds and cooperating closely with researchers, the government, patients and volunteers.

My job was to photograph 6 duo’s who were somehow related; a former cancer patient and his wife, two men from the Board of Trustees, someone who donates money together with someone who donates his time by going door-to-door collecting money, two researchers, et cetera. I met them at home, at the train station or at their place of work and in different cities across the Netherlands. Thanks for letting me borrow the car, mom:)

New work: Schrijf-Schrijf

I was asked by copy-writing agency Schrijf-Schrijf from Utrecht to photograph all employees for their website. The website has  a serious vibe and they wanted photographs to reflect that they were professional yet young and informal agency. I suggested taking i-phone pics during an typical office day as well as taking more official portraits. They could use the “social snaps” in an Instagram kind of way, to off set the more serious portraits.
