Open Day Gerrit Rietveld Academy

I visited the Open Day of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy artschool because I am in search of a good (art)school with a photography department.

Creation of my sister and her crew.

Fashion faux / Fashion Haux


This one was taken, with the Olympus Pen EE.
You know, I still want this book...but I should be careful with spending money because I almost reached maximum debt.

Do you have this book? If so, is it worth buying??
-Picture taken at Streetlab -

Don't take me wrong, I love the blog of The Sartorialist, but I've been in serious doubt of actually buying this book because you can also go to his site and check out the wonderful pictures which are also published in the book. But perhaps I should just buy it anyway for my tiny book collection.

And this one is taken with the Yashica B.
I'm posting this one (which was taken at work) just to give this (fashion-related) post an extra fashionable touch. (I know: I don't make any sense. Do I?)

By the way, Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) just posted square format pictures on his blog for the very first time. I think he wants to add a classic element of the film photography-era into his new stuff.

In the future, every photographer wants to use at least an analogue camera for at least 15 minutes.

Happy(!!)...oh wait...

Am I too late with yelling out 'Happy New Year!' to everyone?
Oh yes I am. But I'm gonna tell a little (visual) story about my NYE days anways. So there! Pooh!


Me and sis went to our parents place to spend some peaceful times during Christmas. We got pampered by mommy. Big time.
This is our mom. Sitting next to the Christmas tree which was decorated by always...for the last 10 or so years.


But I celebrated New Years Eve at someone else's place (back in Amsterdam) who lived between two lovely prostitutes.

And then it was time to party.

I was on the guestlist of a label night party, somewhere in the always-filled-with-only-tourists-and-tourists-only-Warmoesstreet. The reason I was put on the guestlist, is that I used to be an electronic music producer...(yes, one of my 'secrets') and I know the label owner: DJ BONE who released a record of mine, many years ago when I was an ambitious youngster trying to become the world's best electronic music producer.
Unfortunately it didn't work out for me as school kind of intervened my dream. But...I graduated a few months ago (don't take me wrong, I'm proud of myself I received my Bachelor diploma...STAY IN SCHOOL!), and therefore I have more time on working on a come back!!
Every now and then, I still receive e-mails from event organisers who want to book me to perform as a DJ. But I'm not a DJ...I'm just a producer. I would love to learn how to play live though. It's time to realise my dream as a musician and travel all over the world!!

Enough with the are more pics of this night.

After the Subject Detroit Label Night...I went to Studio 'till we drop on the floor!

Happy New Year everyone. And may all of your wishes may come true...THIS year!
