Exhibition “The Forgotten”

A couple of decades ago I came to Amsterdam in the belief that the Netherlands was the only country in the world which had the opportunity to be the first society to be blind to colour, religion and gender.Unfortunately those ideals have been corrupted over the years, leaving us with a society that seems to have forgotten the poor, the infirm and the old in favour of the instant gratification and the greed of the very few, be they politicians, bankers or the “famous”.

These are a few portraits without enhancements, beautification or other tricks of the ones who refuse to be Forgotten. 

They simply say “We Are…”
