The project FACESTORIES began on Facebook under the motto ‘Behind every face lies a story to be told’. Writer Ariëlla Kornmehl and photographer Julie Blik visited 100 famous and lesser-known Dutch people with the idea that everyone carries a story with them that is worth telling. This idea paid off and resulted in 100 personal stories and equally personal portraits.
‘It was a fantastic experience to be photographed and interviewed by this talented duo. I gave far too much away in our conversation – to the interviewer’s credit. And all my well-known poses for the camera were wiped out and transformed into photos that surprised and pleased me.’ – Jeroen Vullings
The project is now being released in book-form. Beautifully designed, with the photos printed in duotone. One hundred revealing stories from one hundred inspiring Dutch people.
‘Damn, why am I not in this?’ – Tommy Wieringa
