For Sunday Street day, I’m digging up some summer Dam stories today, made earlier this year, on the Dam square in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (July 2014)

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.

Here is the second photo from the mini-series I made on the Vocational Trainingmarket in Leiden (*). It’s the hands of two young students manicure showing treating the hands of two interested girls. 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:
