A little over a year ago Elisabeth de Vires contacted me to say that she followed my blog and became a full time photographer in our years after high school. We know each other from our teenage years in Haarlem, but both live in Amsterdam now. We were never really in the same group of friends – Elisabeth was much cooler as she was senior in high school, when I was still a junior – but always knew of each other’s existence.
We decided to work together on a 90s inspired editorial (1, 2, 3, 4), shot in our old high school in April of last year. From then on, we meet for coffee every once in a while to talk about work, art, but mostly our personal lives. I am very proud of what Elisabeth has built up the past couple of years and therefore would like to share some of her work with you. And I picked her brain on how to manage a career as a young photographer these days. Here we go!
