Tearsheets: Editorial portrait for Folia Magazine

With the new academic year Folia Magazine, independent magazine for the University of Amsterdam, comes with a new volume. For the first two issues i worked on two editorial portraits. Both as feature and also one for the cover.

First was Emma Curvers, UvA Alumni, columnist and debuting author with Dutch novel Iedereen kan schilderen.

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!

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.

Corporate Photography de Belastingdienst

For a national campaign by de Belastingdienst (Dutch Tax and Customs Administration) I did the photography for brochure U & de Belastingdienst and various online publications. The campaign was to inform on the various services, for private and commercial parties, the Dutch Tax Administration provide.

The agency went for a more documentary approach, with emphasis on people and environment. Although all settings were completely staged (location, models), i really liked to work towards a documentary touch. All images incorporates governmental visual guidelines.

I Am Gay and Muslim project round up

Last month the I Am Gay and Muslim project was involved in a lot of activities. Chris visits various international film festivals for the documentary and the photo series is on display in two exhibitions.

I Am Gay and Muslim documentary Banned in Kyrgyzstan
The film documentary makes its way well through the festival circuit. After festival screenings in South Africa, Italy, USA and Portugal, Chris went to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan where the film was programmed as closing film at the Bir Duino film festival.

What should have been the first screening in an Islamic country turned out otherwise. The film got banned by the Prosecutor General’s office after the Kyrgyz State Committee on Religious Affairs determined it to be “extremist,” “offensive to Muslims,” and “inciting interreligious hatred”.

The combination of our series and the series See Through Us by Diana Blok (portraits and stories of gay women/men and transsexuals in Turkey) works very well and i am thrilled because i was a fan of this series from the start.

At last, but not least, there was the Pride Photo Award 2012, for which the I Am Gay and Muslim project was rewarded with a special mention. The Pride Photo Awards focuses on LGBT-issues and gathers a lot of attention on the subject with a exhibition in the Oude Kerk and huge displays throughout the city (on no less than seven locations!).

Samira Maas for Folia Magazine

An other editorial for  Folia Magazine, an independent publication for the University of Amsterdam. This time on Dutch actress and recently graduated legal student Samira Maas. For the main, -cover-, shot we went out on the streets. Street shots tend to be unpredictable, overcrowded or littery. With he limited depth-of-field in the shot, the subtle use of type design, the result is still keeping a strong focus on Samira.
