I started the final leg on the way the publish my project. From now on I am on strict schedule towards finishing the preparation for the printer. Last week my friend and colleague Ellen Kok helped me to make a first edit of my work. She was fair, but brutal:) This process is not for the faint-hearted, she killed some of my babies! Next week I will have a second edit by Robert Stevens, former photo editor-in-chief of Time Magazine and now teacher at the International Center of Photography (ICP).
I am happy to announce I have found two writers willing to write an introduction for my book. Jan Donkers, he was a famous radio host for 30 years for the VPRO radio and television, he is a writer and Americanist. Second, James Kennedy (born in Orange City, Iowa) is a writer and American historian. He is a professor at the University of Amsterdam.
Graphic designer Esther de Boer - Es & Zn in Amsterdam will design the book.
I will keep you posted on any progress.
