Under the Awnings

(Onder de luifels)

Documentary photo assignment, commissioned by the Amsterdam Art Fund (Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst), 1994. Executed in 1994/1995.

The subject of this series is “the seemingly insignificant details that one can come across in niches, in porches, behind shop windows and in between market booths. An often neglected world ‘behind the scenes’ that however bears an inexpressable essence of the city of Amsterdam.”

The vintage prints of this series (fibre-based gelatine silverprints) are being preserved in the collection of the municipal archives of Amsterdam (Stadsarchief Amsterdam).
