Editorial Portrait: Casper Thomas for Folia Magazine

For Folia Magazine, I was out for a portrait of Dutch journalist and author Casper Thomas. Thomas wrote Competente Rebellen (Competent Rebels), a publication about the 2015 Maagdenhuis occupation at the University of Amsterdam.

Picture had to be taken with Maagdenhuis in the background. The situation 10 minutes before shoot:


Portrait photography on the streets can be challenging; you can almost never have full control of all things in a crowded area. I let things just happen and try to take benefit from the element of surprise.
