We are two aspiring photographers, with the same enthusiasm, passion and dedication, but from totally different cultures. Maria is from Lisbon and Koen is from the Netherlands, from a town too small to mention. After we’d had contact with each other for months, we decided to extend our collaboration. We thought of a project, that we will simply call the Project for now. It is about more than just photography. We try to connect our cultures, show their differences and their similarities.
Each month, there is one subject. We are free to do anything that crosses our minds with that subject. We aren’t bound to any rules, let the creativity flow.
What is more interesting to capture than ourselves? Humans, rational beings with moral beliefs. Dynamic beings, too, and thus hard to photograph. Constantly moving, moving on. Human life is one of the most frequently documented subjects, however far from complete. Take a look at our attempts.
