Editorial portrait for Folia Magazine 65th anniversary issue

In October 2013, Folia Magazine, the independent weekly of the University of Amsterdam, celebrates its 65th anniversary. For this memorable occasion, the editorial staff decided to go for a special issue with seven 4-page interviews with professor emeriti of the university.

All regular Folia photographers were given one person and had carte blanche for the job. So this edition gives a nice view of different approaches to portrait photography.

I was assigned to Prof. em. dr. Michiel A.J. Eijkman, dentist, appointed as Professor of Social Dentistry/Information Science at the University of Amsterdam (ACTA). A lively speaker and former Navy-man, a recipe for some good stories on-site. I decided to go for a clean, open portrait with full focus on the portrayed.
