Things of Significance | 2016
Over the course of a year I spoke to more than 25 people from all over the world, who are now living in Amsterdam. Every person had a story to share and an object to show. I painted these Things of Significance and wrote down their stories. Individually they make beautiful and incredible portraits, together they show it’s impossible to judge new Amsterdam citizens
as a homogeneous group.
TOS* is my humble attempt to emphasize the power of dialogue. I can recommend it to everyone.
