• Meeting CoBrA

  • In 1995, during the opening of the CoBrA Museum in Amstelveen, the Netherlands,
    I photographed
    the then present former members of the CoBrA movement, 1948 - 1951.

    These artists, then between 75 and 85 years old made a big impression on me.
    After that session I asked them to do something, anything on the big prints, 30x45",
    I made. I wanted them to give a comment on their own portrait. To give a commend on themselves.
    They all did except two of them who joined the Lord in heaven.
    I thought it would make a nice project and I believe it is.
