Today it’s time for the third photo from the mini-series I made on the Vocational Trainingmarket in Leiden (*). This time the hands of the young girl who was kneading the bread in the photo here . I turned these photo’s into black and white and added a grain filter. I want to put them together into a collage-poster – by following my blogs you’ll be able to see the step by step process.

Yesterday I was in Leiden, a small historic town in the Netherlands. I wanted to make a photo-reportage about the International Photo Festival in Leiden – which I did – but then happened to walk into a totally different event.

On one of the church squares where the displays with photo’s were set up, a large crowd of people had gathered before the entrance of the church. I wondered what was going on, saw a lady with a camera who was obviously a press photographer or reporter, and asked her whether she could tell me more. She told me that in half an hour, the official opening would take place of a two- day info market, in which vocational training schools would present themselves to young potential students, who will soon have to make their choice for a vocational training next year. That sounded quite interesting to me, so I decided to stay around and make a photo-reportage about this event as well.

The total story and a selection of the photo’s I made on the vocational training info-market you can find here on Demotix. I really loved to see how young people who are already in vocational training were eager to demonstrate their skills, and share about it with others.

There were a few more images that just didn’t make it into my Demotix story any more, but I like to show them here:
