In the exhibition of the documentary series Brabanders with a non-Brabant background are on display talking about their background. The series was commissioned by Schatten van Brabant and previously aired on Omroep Brabant.

Rob: “I started making these portraits out of dissatisfaction with politics where people are pitted against each other. I can’t stand that people are simply dismissed as ‘foreigners’ without looking at the unique man that comes into our environment to live and work. ”

 Traces of Mobility
Five photographers from Eindhoven where approached for a photo assignment in the context of the theme ‘mobility’. In collaboration with the Hub for expats in Eindhoven these photographers were linked to five expats living in Eindhoven. The goal is to make a photographic interpretation around a set of questions to clarify the man behind the expat. The themes of Traces of Mobility are: journey, home, why, differences, Eindhoven. The exhibition can be seen from Friday April 19, on the 1st floor as a side event of the Reframe festival.
