PhSk Thursday/Friday

Dear students, I have had many requests from students of the B-group to join the PhSk-class this Thursday instead of Friday. However, it is NOT possible to switch classes this week, because of the limited spaces in the darkroom and the small amount of (outside) large format camera's. Otherwise there are just too many students for the facilities we have at our disposal.

An ordinary miracle
Alexandra Hunts

Maakbaarheid van het geluk

In de tijden van crisis geloven mensen niet in geluk, want dat lijkt onmogelijk in deze moeilijke tijden. Maar ze vergeten dat je eigen geluk in je eigen handen ligt. Je kan zelf onmogelijke waar maken. Om dit uit te beelden heb ik gekozen voor voorwerpen uit sprookjes en legenden die in het echt niet bestaan, maar door ze zelf te maken en te fotograferen, worden ze geen sprookje meer- maar echt en reëel.
