We do not always get along very well, but Alexander is my only real contact in Russia and I love the man. I worked with him on the first Russian Museum for Erotic Art, at the Novy Arbat, quite close to the Kremlin. I was amazed by the productivity of the Russian construction workers who built the largest museum of its kind in little over [...]
It is this time of the year again. Every autumn I am reminded of a poem called ‘November’ by Dutch Poet J.C. Bloem. This year I decided to create an animation based on a sculpture of his face and the sound bytes. I am having fun.

To me as a photographer who likes to direct a photograph it is almost awkward to photograph a highly professional model like Alicia. It feels like shooting fish in barrel. Every pose she strikes is perfect. There is nothing to do for me but pushing my camera button and worrying if the flashes can keep up with the pace. The results were [...]
