Art Fair RAI 2018
April is the month of (art) fairs. Such as the annual KunstRAI in Amsterdam. This year I had an extra reason to go to this fair: Galerie RA presented in their stand eight photographs made by me! I made these in the commission of this gallery. Twelve women and men photographed outside on the streets, all of them wearing a special piece of jewelry by different designers.
Snapshots of the visitors
Of course, I also photographed a number of visitors. Like Brigitte Drost. Brigitte is a physician and she has completed the Art Academy. She combines both. She has her own clinic for medical and aesthetic dermatography and injectables in The Hague. And she is also affiliated with the Anthony van Leeuwenhoek Hospital in Amsterdam. She has a distinctive taste, I would love to talk to her about her style on another occasion. Here she wears a dark blue salopette, combined with a Chanel jacket, a beret and a striking Dior handbag. Brigitte: “I’ve always been crazy about fashion. I love special clothes. Now that I am older I find it a challenge to still look good, but the boundary not to wear something too youthful is sometimes difficult.”
This man did not want his face on the picture, but I was allowed to capture his special pants.
Monique van den Leuvert, works as an independent HR project and interim manager. Monique loves striking jewelry, this necklace was made by the German designer Samira Götz, bought at Galerie Rob Koudijs.
This man was in the company of a charming lady, but she did not want to be photographed …
Finally: A friend, Marjo van der Linden. Marjo: “I am waiting for my son, we are visiting the art fair together. It’s really a coincidence that I’m wearing my red coat again! ”
