Wij zijn Willibrordus
This short photo series was displayed in the chapel of St. Willibrordus in Heiloo at the end of 2015. The chapel is a very beautiful location and a great place for a photo exhibition. The exhibition showed the work of many local photographers, focusing on Stichting Willibrord, its premises, businesses, history, people, and activities.
My series depicts the people working at, living at, and visiting the Willibrordus centre in Heiloo. I portrayed the people I met there while walking my dog: no arranged meetings, but coincidental and spontaneous encounters and chats. Most of the people I met, no in fact all of them, were happy to have their picture taken and tell me their stories. A very pleasant experience! My documentary series was inspired by the popular HONY series (Humans of New York).
