Column FOTODOK Book Club on Cancel Fear
On December 3, during the FOTODOK Book Club, I spoke out a column with a retrospective on cancel issues in 2020 and a message for 2021: “Let’s put the hard rhetoric behind and make 2021 the year of a renewed openness to critical reflection, to nuance, to shades of grey, and also to forgiveness, to empathy for people who make mistakes. And especially to building a beautiful, diverse, inclusive art world together. With everyone. Also with people who make mistakes and want to do better.” Click on the link for a Dutch translation of the column on the website of FOTODOK. English version can be sent on request.

They put their fate in the hands of others and wait. That’s unnecessary. This workshop’s main objective is to help students become liberated photographers and publishers, ready to begin sharing their stories with the world
