To grow a Friend I

First picture in a series of 4 portraits (and maybe more later (If I make more friends=) )), I shot during our meetup in Holland.

This guy is Thomas. And I love this guy. We became friends faster than the speed of light a few months ago and he got the idea of the meetup which is the best thing that ever happened to me in a while. I met with four fantastics who will all have their face in this series.

Now I'm even considering moving out to the Netherlands in a near future. This country is awesome and has awesome people in it or not so far by plane.


My idea was to get this printed and send it to him secretly but I feel like a douche not uploading anything from the meetup. (lame excuse, i just couldn't wait)


also, first mixed-art photo you see from me. A teaser for my book somehow.

    Oh, if I could only coat my walls in your pictures Marwane! This is so beautiful, the spiralling of the framing and the intricacy & detail of those roots on his face; the whole image is amazing. And I adore the mixture of mediums here, it's something I keep meaning to try & can only hope to execute this perfectly!
