Days of self-portraits
Between 2019 en 2021, I made a self-portrait every day for a 1000 days, in total It took me 142,86 weeks or 32,87 months or 2,74 years. The foundation: ‘Stichting Kunst & Cultuurbevordering Nederland’ gave me a subsidy to make a book of a selection of the 1000 photo’s. Gallery PLAY room helped with this process. With this project I wanted to improve every day, become more creative and develop a relentless work-ethic. It was a process of personal development, a coming of age series. Although the goals initially were much more simple. I learned lots of things, gained so many experiences and occasionally lost parts of my sanity. After the publication of the book (27-11-2022) I had a solo exhibition with presentation of the book in Gallery PLAY room in Zaandam.
From Saturday, February 25, I will participate with a number of portraits in a group exhibition in Artzaanstad (the location). This exhibition will last until April 10. The book can also be viewed there, for more information see: https://artzaanstad.nl/.
