Underground Art

In the 1.5 weeks we spent in Tehran, a city with a population of more than 8 million, we hardly saw any graffitis or stencils. The city is dominated by Islamic Republic propaganda. We did see and photograph three stencils, however, and saw one beautification project, that, really, is beautiful.

Sara and Carmen

A while ago, I met Sara and Carmen, a lesbian couple living in Winterthur, Switzerland. They live in a registered partnership and have a daughter, Joa, who's turned 1 in July. I interviewed them in the summer and have recently started photographing them for my (book) project about lesbian lives. The idea behind this project is to document and highlight the challenges, difficulties and discriminations lesbian women are dealing with around the world. I started work in Johannesburg, and I'm very happy to have found Sara and Carmen for my Swiss chapter (and also that they live considerably closer).

On Assignment In Angola

In August, I spent two weeks in Angola, on assignment for Todos magazine. I had a wonderful time, and assembling photos for this post makes me miss Africa very much. Here are a few making-of shots, scenes from the road and outtakes.
