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.
