From Dutch Hood To Italian Mountains
I grew up in South East Amsterdam, better know as the Bijlmer. Which you could definitely describe as problem area back in the 80s and 90s. Besides families with low income, drugs and crime were uprising. My mom was a single parent and did not had the budget for my little sister and I to go on vacation. So I spend like most kids from my neighborhood the summers in Amsterdam playing outside .
End summer 2019 I was asked to shoot for Dutch streetwear brand Clan de Banlieue in Northern Italy and looking back I realize and appreciate this opportunity for me to work across borders!
