having fun


Finally.. a beautifull night at the Parade! After long rainy days we are drinking sangria, making poffertjes (pancakes), see some theatre shows and enjoy the giant's stride. Oh yes!

torta di mia madre

A visit to my parents before we leave to Portugal for one month. My mother made this fantastic chocolate cake with cookies and tofu. There's a first time for everything. It tasted very good!

Outside of one of my favourite cinema's, Cinerama, there is this great mozaique in green and blue hues. It reminded me of a snake's skin.

the night in our kitchen


After a long day we had dinner with a glass of wine, talked about our day and we watched the night entering our kitchen. What a great night!

dreams



























































The dreams within the items Andries (my grandfather's brother) collected. When time stops, memories remain and dreams may take over. This dream I've made reminded me of the film The Science of Sleep. Fantasy, love, dreams and these items are vulnerable within the memories we hang on to them.

love for the few

In a cardboard box I collect words and phrases from the newspaper. I like to make my own news with words that come together by chance. 

A Princess talk

Golden shoes
Sweaty uniforms
A guarantee for success

the one & the many at the docks





We visited this great performance at the docks of Rotterdam. In an old submarine hangar the Scandanavian art duo Elmgreen & Dragset created a surreal city-life. What a crazy surrounding! It's almost like you are lost within a movie scene.

Mister Dim

Hello Mister Dim! I've met Dim in Dordrecht where he sat outside of his house. Dim is a bit big.. his owner told me that when he was little he had some problems with his health and over the years he became fat due to the medicines they gave him. Now he is so big he can't fit through his own cat flap anymore. His owner has to stay at home and keep the door open so Dim can go in and outside. Now that's love

african mail


Yes! A new message from Janneke. Not from Amsterdam but from Africa. Together with her sister Hillie, who is a photographer, she visited her family. They are working on a project about image and prejudices in Africa and Europe.
