On a trip I took to attend a conference with some of my colleagues in the spring of 2011, armed only with my small Canon VIXIA HF camera, I shot as much as I could while we were on the move. I had always heard how much Amsterdam loves and utilizes the bicycle as a way of life but it wasn't until I arrived when it truly sunk in. If I ever have the opportunity to go back, I will not be leaving my real cameras behind:) What an amazing place for anyone who loves bicycles! Enjoy.
This is the official making-of the Spencer Tunick installation in Amsterdam 2007, produced for Dream Amsterdam Foundation.
Together with dutch filmdirector Mark de Cloe ('Het leven uit een dag') and eight of my interns I shot this film of an installation by American photographer Spencer Tunick. About 2000 people got naked at dawn in the streets of Amsterdam on June 3rd 2007. He did four sessions on several spots: 2000 nudes in Q-park, 100 women on bikes, 100 men in a gasstation and about 15 to 20 men and women in different combinations on a floating bridge at the Rozengracht. Such an amount of nudes together caused quite some uproar in the early morning.. especially the locals we're surprised to find a bunch of naked people on their doorstep.
Organisation: Dream Amsterdam.
Director: Mark de Cloe.
Production/Assembly: Anouk Wouters.
Camera: Qué Pasó.
The city district Amsterdam Osdorp recently merged with Slotervaart and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer and was given the name Amsterdam Nieuw-West. This change also meant the end of 20 years of restructuring urbanized areas. To celebrate everything achieved, a book was published. ‘The Metamorphosis of Osdorp’ gives an overview of the architectural highlights. PlusOne was asked to create an intriguing video.
