That's us (Annelies, Joke, Meia, me), behind the table of Boek en Band in the Pieterskerk. With our themebooks, this year inspired by a song or a poem. My concertina is on the back on the right. This time my work was fairly simple. As a starting point I used photos of houses, taken in Bergen, Norway this summer. The song that fitted best was House for sale by a Dutch band Lucifer/Margriet Eshuijs [song about a couple that's breaking up]. So I worked the other way around, actually. The photos are enlarged, edited and cut in a visual appealing way. The work got strength in my opinion by using predominantly black and white. Only some details are from the colour copies. Besides I thought it a challenge using only a few colours.
The man on the left is in my eyes, "the stranger" from the song, "who will be climbing up the stairs, to the bedroom filled with memories. The ones we used to share."
