Here you see me, through his camera.
It’s one of the rare moments he uses his Minolta SRT 100 and I must say, I’m grateful for that. It was, after all, my birthday gift to him after his old analog camera broke beyond repair. Making sure I got him a camera that worked, woke something up in me I never realised that could be woken up again. The slow pace, becoming creative with a fix set of possibilities, the excitement of how the photo will turn out and rediscovering forgotten frames on the film, summarizes best what moves me to take his camera for a walk.
I’m Noortje, Dutch and together with my grand boyfriend, our wonderful son and cosy cat I’m
Berlin Stockholm living. I’m an 80′ kid, a 90′ jukebox, I prefer food over cooking, I’m fascinated by languages, always in search for stories – including those on Netflix & HBO and forever enjoying Dutch clichés like flowers, bikes and water.
About my work.
I’m a creative and as the founder of Concept Store I focus on establishing brands in the digital era and create stories for their digital communications. In my spare time I’m walking in the Swedish forests or trying to finish my half-read books.
I hope you’ll enjoy my blog and I’d love to hear from you in the comments or in my inbox. Love, Noortje
