some more snapshots from Amsterdam

Recently I attended two different fairs: Sieraad Art Fair on the Westergasterrein. And the art fair  PAN, both in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, the weather was not great, at least not for taking pictures outside. I managed to make a few more snapshots.

Here you see Cor de Graag from Rotterdam. When I arrived I was just in time to photograph Cor and his girlfriend Sandra. They had already admired all the art. Cor is the owner of Trendy Rotterdam and he is working on a website about ‘trendy’ Rotterdam.  We expect more news about this early next year and agreed that when he’s ready I will come to Rotterdam so he can tell me all about it. One thing is certain: Cor has a striking dress style.

During the Jewelry Art Fair, I photographed Emmy Huijben (1955). Her glasses are by  Michel Henau, unfortunately, Emmy does not know who made her jewelry.

Babs Haenen (1948) worked for 19 years as a teacher at the Ceramics Department of the Rietveld Academy. She still works as a ceramist. Next year there will be a solo exhibition in New York is on the program. Her work will be on show at Galerie Hostler Burrows. Babs: “I’m a real redhead, I only have to treat it a little bit ones in a while. As far as my clothes are concerned, I love color combinations as well. The cardigan is by Paul Smith, the skirt is by a French designer, whose name I have forgotten.” (I’m guessing that the skirt is from the label La Fee Maraboutée.)
