This is the picture of myself I found on the website of the well known UK newspaper The Guardian a couple of weeks back (check out the full article). I thought it was hilarious to see myself accompanying an article on the dangers of wi-fi signals. I also found it to be a tad worrying as I never really intended to have my goofy self-portraits spread out over the internet like that! So how did I go from being a normal young guy to a paranoid celebrity conspiracy theorist? I owe it all to Creative Commons!
A few weeks ago I visited the ‘Eye’ film-museum in Amsterdam for the first time. They started off with an impressive exhibition on Stanley Kubrick, the movie director famous for films as A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining and Full Metal Jacket. As those are all films that have had their influence on me somewhere in my youth, I had to see this.
Some of my photography work has been exhibted at the Traces exhibition alongside talented photographers Eavan Aiken and Olivier Moron. This took place at Canvas op de 7e in Amsterdam. The exhibition is already gone now, so here are the pictures that were exhibited there.
As I’ve made quite a few timelapse and stop-motion video’s, Ives One asked me to help him out with a commercial assignment for a Dutch telecommunications company. It took us 5 days of shooting, loads of paint, patience and a full day of editing. We’re quite happy with the result though!
