It is great to have the images and the cause made available to this part of the world!

Editorial: the UvA Maagdenhuis Protest

publications

For a while now the University of Amsterdams Maagdenhuis has been occupied by UvA students and activists. The university-wide movement acts under joint name De Nieuwe Universiteit (The New University) and strives for more democracy in the UvA administration (among other demands).

This april, the six week occupation comes to an end. I was there to portray the occupants for Folia Magazine.

Marokkaanse Boot in Amsterdam Museum

news

The Amsterdam Museum (Amsterdam Historic Museum) recently put the Marokkaanse Boot, a Moroccan themed boat at Amsterdam Gay Pride, on display in the museums recent history section.

Shown are the costumes of the Boot participants by Dutch designer Corné Gabriëls. The museum went to me for images, since I documented the Marokkaanse Boot during Amsterdam Gay Pride 2014 fairly well.

I think it is great that the museum recognizes this topic -gay rights- and is proud of it’s role in Amsterdam history.
