Seen at the Photofestival in Naarden. Said was born deaf in Afghanistan and grew up feeling like an outcast in Dutch society.
Emma Wackers (1993), a social engaged imagemaker created an interactive installation "Both Different" about Said, deaf dancer Machiel and wordblind Emma in which they ask to be included in society.

This chubby todler is me with my father in 1948. He was a teacher in Amsterdam and loved photograph and traveling, two things I do love too. In his six weeks summerholidays from school he travelled some weeks as a tour guide to Germany, France and Austria. He also liked carpentry and made a dollhouse for my sister and me and a warehouse for my brother. He died in 1991 at 81 years old.

The Netherlands Photomuseum in Rotterdam has an exhibition "Lust for Life" of Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990) He is well known for his streetphotos in the sixties and the seventies. In 2016 his colour slides were discovered that were in a bad condition and had inmediately to be restored, 42.000 colour photos were cleaned and saved forever from destruction.
Here an example of the restoration.
It was a joy to see all the photos of the sixties in Amsterdam, the" flower power" and "sit ins".
Brought back nice memories of that time when we lived there too.
I had the same blue shoes with platform soles! And a mini-skirt too.
