This month we have been crowdfunding the printing costs for our book Remodeling on voordekunst.nl.

This week local hero and artist Paul Hoek visited my studio. A small preview… to be continued… If you are curious about his work, please check: paulhoek.nl
For artist Eiko Ishizawa we went outside to let her Great Sleeping Bear wander through the dunes and beach of Noord-Holland.
This bear is more than special. Check her work and the story behind here.
A little update: Step for step we are getting closer to our final result! At the moment we are inviting writers to participate our project ‘Remodeling’. As a teaser, we have our website online. Feel free to click, especially if you want to know more about it: http://hymmen-and-hiroi.com
This is where the magic comes from! For the second time I was in Arita, Japan for the wonderful project of 2016/. Artisans from Arita, specializied in porcelain, are linked with 16 international designers to create 16 new collections for a new brand: 2016/. I photographed parts of the process and landscapes of Arita for a project book that will be published by Phaidon. The presentation of the products and the book launch will take place in Milano at Milan Salone 2016. For more information, please check the project website with photos by Kenta Hasegawa.
To continue our project Remodeling, I went to Berlin in August together with Kumi. We met great people, discussed our project and Kumi started designing the book. We also did some very nice portraits.
This is me, preparing a shooting, being the stand-in myself and testing flashlight, supposed to be ‘anti-fashion’ somehow.
This project is mentioned about a year ago: Kumi and I have been working whenever possible to make a series of portraits inspired and based on people’s descriptions of fashion-advertising (working title: remodeling). We will be making a book and exhibition. Due to our commissioned work it will probably take another six months until we can proudly present the result. Be prepared!
One of our models is Germaine. On our FB-page we show – just like this one – photographs of our work in progress. Not the definite ones.
For Alley Sessions we filmed and recorded live performances of musicians and bands in the beautiful alleys and corners of Utrecht. The project is produced by Dunder Blixem. The last session was with two members of the Dutch band Kensington.

The German feeling of Fernweh (might be translated to wanderlust) has always been accompanying me and is an old friend of mine. Obviously influenced by my travel experiences, I started making a series of silkscreens where I use my own photographs as a basis for my visual story.
Together with Judith Hofmann, we invited a bunch of artists and talents to join us and make work for this theme for a graphic exhibition called FERNWEH. Our exhibition will take place at the same time as the ‘Maand van de Grafiek in Nederland’.
The 29th of September we will be showing the works of 17 artists at Dynamo Expo. From the 25th until the 27th of October the works will also be shown at Depot BG in Amsterdam.
We’ve been busy during the summer. Of course, we’ll be making a few last edits in the coming weeks, but still… my new website is online! My whole new identity, including this website, has been redesigned by graphic designer Barbara Hennequin. So expect me to be handing over new business cards and sending you fresh looking invoices in the upcoming months!
At the moment I’m working on a new project with designer Kumi Hiroi. We are working on an interesting, funny and beautiful series about posing and modeling – I’m excited to show you more soon! We already did 12 shootings.
One of them was with Hanna:
During the production of Peter Thorwart’s new movie I took some photographs on set. Super nice to see this hard-working crew! I was lucky to have one of my very favourite actors in front of the camera: Moritz Bleibtreu together with Jasmin Gerat. I took this awesome portrait of them with their Ford Mustang on the beach. A beautiful setting! ‘Nicht mein Tag’ will be on German screen in Januari 2014. I’m looking forward to it!
With designer Kumi Hiroi I’ve been working on the presentation of her project Kind of Scarf and took photos for her.Check her website: here
