This is Björn. One of my very best friends and the main trigger for me to visit Malaysia. We first met somewhere in the beginning of this century, when he came working in the architect office I already was working in. Somehow we got connected; but our friendship really got a boost when we went out shooting together in august 2005. Crawling around in a dried-out mudhole; shooting cracked clay; weird trash and fish-corpses truly brings people together. (my best shot of that day: ‘Waiting for Water’) Shooting together became a serious thing; ending the day with debating the shots we took over some delicate beers. When greed made the financial world collapse, his friend Lindsey and he finally left the Netherlands for better opportunities in Kuala Lumpur… Best thing: they really like it out there. Especially the food. On the table my very first Malaysian dish. I could fill the plate with whatever I liked and then they ‘judged’ how much I had to pay… Very strange for a Dutchman. It was around €2,50; which is extremely cheap; and it tasted very good!
