It was my first campaign, but it is still close to my heart. It is still representative of the style and atmosphere that you find in my work today. The client and the creative team (Tom and Iwein) gave me a lot of freedom about how I wanted to photograph this series. Using wallpaper as a background was quite original in those days. In this campaign animals were ‘forced’ to shut up, so the owner’s ears could peacefully prepare for the Klara Festival. No actual animals were harmed.
