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.
The result is a 1/1 page portrait, with a follow up on the next page with Mr. Eijkman in his study (click for larger image).
