Life of a Photographer may 2017

Last Friday we had the final shoot with 4 photographers, 1 very well known Dutch Late Night show host Humberto Tan, and boy did we had fun! our pictures are online now and the audience can decide who is going to win the grand prize of "endless fame".

explaining concept to create the mood I was after

Concept

Humberto Tan, self made man. He had no easy childhood but managed it to succeed in life just by willpower!

Humberto was a member of "Suriprofs" a group of Surinam professionals who succeeded in the Netherlands. Because of this membership tell's this a lot about him, he is proud of his roots and his background.

We all know that Suriname is a melting pot of different cultures, there are Hindostans, Creoles, Marrons, Javan's, Jew's etc. etc. All of these cultures live next and with each other in peace.

Together with designer Else Hardjopawiro we picked the pieces of fabric which will represent these different cultures. These fabrics Else has woven it by hand to a cloth, woven and connected like all the cultures.

By wrapping it around Humberto he will carry's all the different cultures with him, Proud of what he achieved in life and proud of his roots where he comes from.

This was the way i wanted to have his portrait,

Proud, really proud!
