Clean out hall ways
Tomorrow morning the jury for the Academy wide prizes will be present, so the facility team will be cleaning out the hallways. If you have any material (wood, paper, etc.) laying around on lockers or on the floor- which you do not want them to throw away- please make sure to store it somewhere safe because tomorrow everything will be gone.
THEO'S TECHNICAL TIP #06
- light meter -
Use the white ball to measure the light sources. Doing so you can very efficiently adjust the power of the used lamps.
- aperture -
Every lens has an optimum aperture. Stopping down or opening your aperture more will result in loss of optical quality. Depth Of Field is also determined by the aperture, so try to find the best aperture setting.

Dear lecturers of the photography department of the KABK,
As you might know, we have been working hard in the past months on getting our Sarajevo magazine published. Our aim is to make the magazine free. Like a message in a bottle, we don’t know who’s going to pick it up, but the important thing is that the message is out there.
Congrats to final year student Lise Straatsma. Her work has been selected in the next edition of Breda Photo (starting September 15, 2016). Lise will graduate in January 2017.

Transcoding Flusser: Synthetic Thinking
'Only by passing through radical abstraction could a new concretization, and thus a new and exciting life become imaginable: With this, post-history would begin.' The media philosopher and cultural theorist Flusser (1920-1991) proactively took up the challenge of rethinking the arts, in the face of the fact that our existence is essentially determined by technology.

Herinneringen aan de toekomst
Evert Klein Nagelvoort
Visie op duurzaamheid
Crisis is en zorgt voor verandering. Veel mensen lijken eerder terug te willen grijpen naar de zekerheid van het verleden, dan een stap te zetten naar de kansen van de toekomst. Ik ben ervan overtuigd dat er op het gebied van duurzaamheid veel kansen en ontwikkelingen zijn in de toekomst.
Deze serie gaat over duurzaamheid, waarin vanuit het heden naar de toekomst wordt gekeken. Het vormt een document van mogelijkheden op het gebied van duurzaamheid. Tegelijker tijd is het een tijdsdocument, want in de toekomst weten we pas in hoeverre deze mogelijkheden echt geïmplementeerd zijn in onze samenleving.
