Cookbook & exhibition Culture House Kade40, Vlaardingen.
For Culture House Kade40 I designed a 200-page cookbook and organized the design and production of an exhibition featuring oversized photos and texts. This project was created in celebration of their tenth anniversary, capturing the cultural scene in Vlaardingen. The participants range from museum directors to florists, each sharing their favorite dish and narrating the origin of their creation within the context of Vlaardingen. The tenth anniversary of Culture House KADE40 is a significant milestone, inviting reflection and marking the beginning of a new decade. It's a moment to look towards the future. Vlaardingen, a city of diverse cultures, is enriched by Kade 40's contribution to the city's cultural canon.
Design cookbook Kade40 Kookt
Kade40 Kookt, 2023, features an introduction by Barry Maré and Sylvia (directors of Kade40). This project, dedicated to the tenth-anniversary celebration, culminates in the highlight of the food festival. The texts are authored by Manou van der Zande and Evelyn Strube, with printing by Puntgaafdrukwerk and visual montage by Jasper Anker Decorations.
Stijl van de Stad
25 individuals portrayed represent a diverse spectrum of disciplines in which they excel, contributing in various ways.
Twenty-five residents of Leiden, who have made significant contributions globally and locally, are collectively showcased in a large design/portrait adorning the Achmea building along the railway at Leiden Central. This artistic endeavor draws inspiration from Theo van Doesburg, a notable Leiden figure who left an indelible mark on the world over a century ago as the visionary founder of the art magazine De Stijl. In my portrayal, you witness present-day Leiden residents actively shaping the world. A city's essence is molded by the individuals who reside and work within it.
Since 1999, I have been active as a documentary portrait photographer, collaborating with magazines and institutions. I feel a deep love for telling stories through images. My ability to connect with my subjects allows me to go beyond the surface and reveal the stories within.
