Portrait exhibition – AMFI duo’s
For the annual graduation event called ‘AMFI Transit’ in the World Fashion Centre in Amsterdam I photographed six AMFI-alumni duo’s. The photos with interviews were exhibited during the event on July 1st. This was the first assignment I did with the Profoto B2 to combine daylight and flashlight. Special thanks to Nienke Monster and Ellen Cornegoor for assisting me with this! Photo above by Joris van Egmond, text by Wiely de Woo.
