So I did it and I am back! I have walked from my home to the highest mountain of Europe, The Mont Blanc (FR).
A big THANK YOU to everyone who supported me through voordekunst.com, and to the CBK Rotterdam who supported me with the O&O grant.
And of course a big THANK YOU to my friends and family who supported me during the journey with sweet texts and messages.
I truly could not have done it without all of you!!
I took one picture per hour, and in the next weeks, I'll be working in my dark room, developing the films and photos!!

Here are some facts about the journey:
- 1106 km (plus loads extra for every time I took a wrong turn, or when my info wasn't correct or had to go to a supermarket)
- 53 walking days and 72 days away from home
- between 12 km and 35 km per day
- 13 days in the Netherlands, 18 days in Belgium, 2 days in Luxembourg, 10 days in Switserland and 29 days in France
- 50 different campings, 2 youth hostels and 1 hotel (prices between €0,- and €48,70 per night)
- 3 heatwaves of several days and 8 heavy rainy days
- on my route I've sent 32 cards, 12 letters, 46 polaroids and 2 packages
- I've used 17 maps and 52 prints of google maps
- I took 403 photos (11 films), 1 photo taken per hour, plus some more at the Mont Blanc

 

Meanwhile my work has been selected for the International Photofestival Leiden (10-31 oct 2015) and they are also taking it to Photoville in New York (10-20 sept 2015)!

Unfortunatelly I had to discontinue my journey to the Mont Blanc due to a tendon inflammation, of which I am still recorvering. So the whole Mont Blanc project is postponed to the spring of 2015.
I am still very thankful to all my sponsors and they will not be disapointed!! The reward for their grand sponsoring will just arive a little later!
I can't wait for spring to start my journey again. I am keeping you posted!!

On the upside, sitting on my ass all day, gave me a lot of time to work very hard on my film project of my father again. The first preview images are online here!

Still working on the movie about my dad and busy preparing for my walking journey to the Mont Blanc (planned for mid August 2014).
To help myself prepare I enrolled myself in 10 km Ladiesrun on June 1st. I also hope to be walking the Nijmeegse Vierdaagse (40 km per day) in July!
Soon more news about both these projects!

Met werk van Silvia Bakker, Nele Brökelmann, Christiaan Drost, Laura Lappi, Daniël van Straalen, Huub Vlemmings en Lydia Weijers.
Georganiseerd door Silvia Bakker en Lydia Weijers.

'goodmorning goodmorning' is de eerste tentoonstelling van een reeks waarin zeven verschillende kunstenaars, die elkaar voorheen niet kenden, intensief gaan samenwerken.
De kunstenaars vertrekken vanuit de realiteit en leggen de nadruk op collectief gedrag en sociale aanpassingen.
Door de diverse uitgangspunten van de individuele kunstenaars, het gebruik van verschillende materialen en de onderlinge discussies, ontstaan er naast de tentoonstelling, nieuwe perspectieven op het eigen werk.
