Thousand women in a theaterplay

Last week I portrayed power women who participate in the play Stille Heldinnen Disco XL. Where certainly a thousand (but preferably even more) women participate! The Rotterdam neighborhood theater makes theater performances with, by and for people from social groups who do not naturally come into contact with theater.

One of the projects is: Women Connected. Women from different countries, but living in Rotterdam, tell their story in theater performances.
On International Women’s Day 2019, the Stille Heldinnen Disco XL is the result. A wonderful initiative in which more than a thousand women will play!

As a female portrait photographer I participate in my own way. This week I photograph the portraits used for the campaign.

Really enjoying being able to get these women, sometimes with some hesitation, in front of my lens. Encouraged by their fellow players, they steal the show and then my heart. Through traditional dances, beautiful clothing, and cultural traditions, each portrait is unique and each person tells her own story

If you also want a spontaneous portrait photo for your company, please  contact me!
