Motley Crowd

Editorial, Photography

ABKM, 2012

Photo book which I designed during my semester abroad at the Academie Beeldenden Kunsten Maastricht.


»All the young people, you will meet in this book, were living for at least a short period of their life in the hall of residence with the lovely, almost tempting name Avant Garde. Anyhow, they had a bit more than a roof over their heads, their own (room-)numbers and own characters. This motley crowd of international students tried their utmost to maintain some semblance of order in the chaos. Grumbling and laughing, eating and learning and of course celebrating weld them together, till they have become good friends.«

Photographs: scans from negatives, taken with a Pentax MX

Texts: introduction, e-mail traffic with the property management, handwritten questionnaires
