My friend and fellow photographer Tessa Posthuma de Boer (http://posthumadeboer.com) started a new initiative. It provides support to everybody active within the creative and cultural industry; a sector that is hit extremely hard by the Corona-regulations.
I was playing around with a similar idea, I called Tessa and we decided to join forces and open it to all under #artistforculture.
So our initiative is for everybody who is, in one way or another, active in the creative industry.
So if you are a filmmaker, actor, musician, songwriter, make-up artist, Photographer, Designer, Writer, or in some way affiliated; we offer our studio, our time, our expertise and experience in making your casting or publicity photos.
Notice that it is no problem for us to maintain the 1,5 meter social distance in our studio’s. As long as you are not sneezing and coughing all over the place.
We would like to apply the Buddhist Dana principle: you pay us what you can afford. If that is very little, no problem. Or if you would like to pay us with something like a book, a bottle of wine, a cd or something else to make life more fun; that’s all okay. In this way we are still able to help each other in going forward and keep on creating in what we do best.
We invite all creatives to come to our studios and if possible add your potential and creativity to support one another and the cultural sector through #artistforculture
Tessa works from her studio in Broek en Waterland and my studio is situated in Loods 6, KNMS Island in Amsterdam.
We are all together in this one. So let us support and help each other!
