Visual Diary #24 – CITIZENFOUR

Currently working for the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). One of this festival highlights is the feature length documentary CITIZENFOUR by director Laura Poitras, -the- film about Edward Snowden. It was interesting to hear the story about the process of making this complicated film.

Editorial Portraits for IFFR 2013

For the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) 2013 edition i am working on various editorial portraits. Guests, usually directors and producers – sometimes cast-, will have their portrait taken for festival magazine Daily Tiger and other publications.

The main competition is the Hivos Tiger Awards Competition, in which debutante directors (with their first feature-length film) compete. A small selection of the, so-called, Tigers.

Besides interesting personalities in front of the camera, Rotterdam city itself is also amazing for taking pictures. With modern architecture, the light and locations differs so much from, for example, the more historical Amsterdam where i am used to work in.
