Bassist Wilbert de Joode, shot last month in Amsterdam for my improvisers series.
If you bring a smart phone to the Eye Film Institute, look for the installation called “Mobile Thrill.” Place your phone on the conveyor belt, press start, and the machine will swallow it, project a film for it, and spit it back out at you. If you set your camera to record video, you can watch the film too. The installation is by Sander Veenhof, Anika Ohlerich, and Madelinde Hageman.
Here’s another photograph from my recent Amsterdram trip, for my improvisational musician series: cellist Harald Austbø.
This is Argentinian saxophonist Natalio Sued, who currently resides in Amsterdam.
I shot this portrait of composer and musician Ab Baars just around the corner from his home in Amsterdam, as part of my series on improvisational musicians. For my trip I decided to keep things very simple regarding gear; I brought one camera and one lens, and no other equipment. Most of the pictures in this series are shot only with available light, including this one. It’s a fun challenge to try to find captivating light outside at night–there’s something magical to me in the serendipity.
I just returned from Amsterdam, where I spent a week shooting portraits of local improv musicians, as well as street pictures. Here’s one, more to follow.
