Folia Magazine, an independent publication for the University of Amsterdam I frequently work for, recently got redesigned. With art directors at Vruchtvlees we worked on the photography for the new cover.

They wanted to go for a clean and more graphical shot. In support of the redesign leaning heavily on typography. Vegetables on the cover are digital altered (but all were thrown in air).

Visual Diary #023 – Arnon Grunberg for Folia Magazine

When Folia Magazines departing editor-in-chief Jim Jansen asked me to accompany him for his last interview for the magazine, I suspected I was in for a treat.

The interviewee was Arnon Grunberg, Dutch author and columnist. Beside his literary works, I have always held him in high regards because of his commentary on contemporary (Dutch) issues in his columns. And for awesome projects like Les vacances de Monsieur Grunberg.

With Folia Magazines art-director Pascal Tieman we decided to go for a different angle; instead of color portraits, high contrast black and white images which he completed with colored gradients.

Than there was Sander Wirken, UvA PhD researcher and initiatior of documentary film Burden of Peace about Claudia Paz y Paz, the first woman to lead the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Guatemala.

The project is still in post-production phase, but the trailer looks really promising!

For that occasion i made a small portrait setup next to the drop off point at the end of the route. And asked participants to pose for a sec.

Tearsheets: Editorial portraits for Rathenau Instituut

For a survey of the Rathenau Instituut i worked on the editorial portraits. The dutch institute studies and reports on developments in science and technology.

The survey itself was on shale gas and fracking. Various players in the field were interviewed and along with a study the publication was to spark debate on the issue and to inform decision makers.
