Curation and coordination photography project Het Beelddepot
An extensive image research project, ‘Het Beelddepot’ (Image Depot, in English) found that the imagery used in Dutch media when reporting on homelessness is stigmatising, biased and unrealistic. A new image bank, to be used by Dutch news papers, broadcast companies and other news platforms, offers a more realistic, neutral and constructive visual approach of the issue of homelessness.
A small group of young, talented photographer and experienced photo journalists developed new photo stories. I coordinated the collaboration and curate the collection. And did photo consultancy for media, partners and stakeholders.
‘Het Beelddepot’ is a journalistic initiative to find and fight stigmas around the issue of homelessness.
