These will be my pictures for the next exhibition.
I made them as an assignment for a course in documentary photography.
Orion in Rotterdam is an organisation based on the philosophies of Rudolf Steiner. Orion is a home for mentally challenged people.They live there and they can also work there in the workshops if they want. One of the principles of Orion is that everybody has a right to work.
Most of the workshops are creative. They make candles, paperwork, ceramics etc.. But they also work on the land, in the garden, their own store and the manège.
I made around 400 pictures during six days. I used a Rolleiflex 3.5f with neopan 400 at 800 souped in xtol 1+1. From these 400 I selected 52 which I made into a book. For the exhibition I narrowed it down to 20. Mostly portrait type of pictures.
For all who can’t see the exhibition I’ll show them here.
The first vernissage is on 19th of August from 15:00 till around 17:00. Because of the holidays we decided to schedule a second vernissage on the 9th of September also form 15:00 till around 17:00. I’d really appreciated when you can attend one of them.
The exhibition is until the 26th of September.
If you like to visit the exhibition on another date please first phone Orion first because they are not always open.
