About the Book
Circle/centre presents my view of Amsterdam. The images I collected when circling the outer limits. And the scenes I encountered in the city centre. In both cases people unmistakingly shaped my city landscape. Whether as tiny footnotes or up close.
All photos were taken in the period 2007-2011. The circles were shot the old-fashioned way, with an analog 6x7 medium format camera and my favourite film Kodak Portra. The centre pieces were taken with digital cameras.
This book accompanies the exhibition on view 12-14 April 2012 in Gallery Connie Bos | a foundation for public art, Zwanenburgwal 178 in Amsterdam.
