Polo gala 2018

It was a big pleasure to photograph the annual gala of Association Polo des Grandes Écoles & Universités. The outstanding venue of this year was the Cercle National des Armées. It’s a military building in the city center of the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Last year, the location was École Militair, next to the Eiffeltower {watch the photos here of last year}.

This gala of 2018 was, like the French call it, magnifique. With 250 guests, the ballroom was decorated by beautiful dresses, champagne and sparkling conversations. As the sun was getting down, the crystal chandeliers made the evening shining.

 

Cécile Cremer – Wandering the Future

Every year, I’m taking the annual press photos of Cécile Cremer. We’ve met in our university (bachelor in international trend research and innovation concept designing). After she graduated, she started her own enterprise called Wandering the Future (WTF). I’m very proud of her, she is a very strong business woman. She recently became the global president of La Futura Trend Network. Can’t wait for next year’s press photoshoot!

 

Veterans documentary by Sanne Kortooms

When I say Veteran, you probably think about an old man with a moustache. But our veteran men and women who used to work in the Dutch army range from 20 till 100 years old. The army is very diverse, and exists of many disciplines. Sanne Kortooms, director, is making a very interesting documentary which will be shown on the Dutch Television on 30 June, NED 1. Can’t wait to see the results!

Ruth

Ruth Geerlinks recently participated in the Dutch TV show: Curvysupermodel 2018. It is a model contest for curvy girls. Ruth explained me that there is a difference between curvy and plus size. The models, as we have known them for years, are wearing size 34 or 36. Plus size models are mostly size 42+, so in the middle is size 38 and 40 which is the curvy model. It’s a good sign that curvy woman are getting more and more in the spotlights.

Model: Ruth Geerlinks

MUA: Ruby Ferrini 

Love is blindness

Love is blindness, one of my favorites songs. Written bij U2 and covered by The Damn Truth. Inspired by the darkness of the song, Anne-Claire Martens and I created this video.

 

Love is drowning 

in a deep well

All the secrets

And no one to tell 

 

* Anne-Claire and I are working together under the name; House of Salomé
