yesterday my brother would have turned 41, and though he never reached the age of 20 he’s is still my ‘older brother’. funny how that works.
I miss him. we miss him.
ps; before I became a photographer I used to draw from time to time, this black and white watercolour pencil drawing was made in 1995, inspired by the photo Mrs MOOS PUTTO took of my brother as a publicity shot for the band NOWEL. mr TONY DAUDEY, married to MOOS, was the lead singer, my brother played guitar.
mr JANTAMINIAU had the, well deserved, tremendous honour of dressing Her Royal Highness Princess MAXIMA on the day her husband became KING of the Netherlands, the day she became our QUEEN.
and where normally the Dutch are known for having an ‘opinion’ here a country was united in adoration of this Royal Blue Gown.
Jan made the Couture House of JANTAMINIAU immortal.
and I was so lucky he asked me to portray the dress. here with mr Jan Taminiau himself overlooking his creation.
miss VICTORIA KOBLENKO (Виктория Кобленко) at VOGUE’s one year BD-Bash.
the LOBSTERHOUSE studio was the decor for a VOGUE exhibition, the best photography of the first year, with work of ao ALIQUE, MARC DE GROOT and PETROVSKY AND RAMONE and a smashing performance by HANDSOME POETS.
VOGUE knows how to throw a party..
“15 minutes of fame.”
if no one else makes you famous, if only for those well known 15 minutes, you best do it yourself.. so add a dash of Warhol and a lot of Bugaboo, sugar it with colour and a little bit of you.
BUGABOO now collaborates with the legacy of mr ANDY WARHOL, see: http://www.bugaboo.com/515
Her Royal Highness Queen BEATRIX of the Netherlands.
in the final month before her abdication our beloved Queen had only a few public appearances left.. ao. the 125th birtday of the Concertgebouw, the opening of the New Rijks Museum and, shown here, the 125th Birtday of the Royal Theatre CARRÉ. and what an appearance she makes.
