MERMAIDS MANSION X PRIDE | For 2019’s Amsterdam Pride my girls of the fabulous drag house Mermaids Mansion teamed up with the Rijksmuseum to make a video highlighting the struggle the LGBTQ+ community has gone through and is still going through to get equal rights and basic respect and validation in society.

I was honoured to be asked to be the stills photographer on set as the video was being filmed, which resulted in a visual diary of the queens in couture creations by Claes Iversen, Bjorn van den Berg and others, surrounded by classical works of art by the great masters in the beautiful building of the Rijksmuseum. The project went viral on social media and was highlighted in several dutch newspapers.
