FaceBoard at the World Ocean Day


Update: Check out the photos taken during the event!


The 8th of June 2014 Scheveningen will be home of the World Ocean Day. The organizers of the event were kind enough to ask me to participate and replicate the FaceBoard concept  in a very special setting.

The focus this year is on reducing plastic use (and abuse) which causes irreversible damages to the sea above and especially below the surface of the water.

Earlier this year I was asked to elaborate on the concept and create a shooting setup featuring a girl dressed in plastic right in front of the ocean waves which resulted in the picture you see above.


The World Ocean Day event will open its doors on the 8th of June at  10.30 o’clock  at the Chizone Event Center, in de LourdeskerkBerkenboschblokstraat 9a, 2586 HD Den Haag – Scheveningen. There you will find me ready to take your picture too!


Participants will have their photo taken, with a board and sentence of choice. You don’t need to reserve and I am pretty sure you will easily spot me once you gain access inside 😉


You can find more info on the event at this page (in Dutch).


The event in Scheveningen this year is organized by the Sea First Foundation, an active NGO made of people passionate for the well being of our waters and that I decided to support throughout my FaceBoard project by donating a small sum collected during the FaceBoard shootings that I have organized so far.

    I’ve learned people have much to learn before we can call ourselfs HUMAN.
    We should stop teaching children our mistakes.
    And each and everyone of us is to blame for all abuse, pollution and destruction by choice.
    We are the foundation of this failing pyramide society.
    Without a foundation, the top comes crumpling down.
    Choose wisely, educate yourselfs, and stop turning a blind eye.
    It’s all up to you, and you, and you, and….
    Become consumer aware, keep plastics to a minimum, and please Go Vegan.
    Save countless lives, reduce co2 admittions, and save billions of gallons of precious water.
    While at the same time avoiding overpriced farmaceutical industries.
    Oceans first! If They Die, We Die! It’s that simple.
