Portraits for Zomergasten, 1 July 2008

Dutch television broadcasting corporation VPRO commissioned me to portrait the guests for the 2008 edition of their popular production Zomergasten (Summer Guests), which is a three-hour live interview programme, which had its 21st season this year with six episodes.

Each episode features one guest who composes his or her ideal television evening by selecting excerpts from his or her favourite documentaries, feature films and television-programmes. The programme does not have any commercial breaks. Host of Zomergasten is Bas Heijne, a well-known author in the Netherlands. Among the guests of this year were Junky XL, Joop van den Ende, Willem Schinkel and Minister Plasterk.
