Visual Diary #025 – IFFR’s Sunday morning

sketchbook

For the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) I am currently working with a whole team of photographers, editors, reporters and designers on the Daily Tiger, the festival’s daily newspaper.

It’s quite an endurance to work for 10-days straight on those tight deadlines. But working in this team makes it all more than good.

Visual Diary #023 – Arnon Grunberg for Folia Magazine

sketchbook

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.
