De Bonte Zwaan - 10 years a creative workspace, office for half a century
Assigned work | Cityscape photography, concept
client: Loods 6
De Bonte Zwaan is a creative workspace floating on water. It has 36 workspace and houses a mix of creatives and companies. It is one of the oldest creative workspaces of Amsterdam. Together with graphic designer Esther de Boer and copywriter Theo van der Vlugt I created this book. We were assigned to show the identity of this place and the people work there to celebrate the 10 years existence.
I choose to emphasize on the contribution of the creatives. So instead of making portraits, I collected selfies of people looking out of their working space. As an addition to that, I took photographs of the different window views, which are a big inspiration the many people who work at this boat.
