Gup Magazine made a special Lowlands edition: they sent their photographers to the festival to each shoot a portfolio. My pictures were included as a special preview of my new book Het Festivalgevoel, coming out in May 2009.
I had the pleasure of photographing Pinkpop, the music festival. This is me with music journalist Arne van Terphoven. Together we are creating the book Het Festivalgevoel (which can roughly be translated as The Festival Feeling).
With 60.000 visitors everyday for three days, it was the busiest edition of Pinkpop so far. 130.000 people going insane in hot spring weather proved very, very photogenic. I can´t wait to show some of the images, but I´ll have to be patient. The book will come out spring next year, a few weeks before the next festival season kicks off.
These images come from my book Het Festivalgevoel. I photographed Holland's biggest festivals for music journalist Arne van Terphoven. For more information and images from this project, click here.
