PORTRAITS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL ROTTERDAM


2012


I was assigned to take pictures for the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2012 for the 'Daily Tiger', a free tabloid sized paper with information about the festival.

Since I wanted to make some serious portraits in the meantime I teamed up with a few members of the festival crew that pointed out actresses and directors for me. Whom I then asked if I could portray them. Here's the result. All portraits where made within a time frame of 10 minutes maximum. Most of them within a few minutes. There were low temperatures, some snow and even some extra lighting provided by the low winter sun.

Quote from Blurb.com-Blog - Book of the Week - "what can you achieve in 10 minutes?"

"Rogier Maaskant’s book, “Portraits,” features a series of portraits from the 2012 International Film Festival in Rotterdam – all taken within a ten-minute window. He certainly had some good subject matter to work with; there’s a whole lot of character to be found in this group of directors and actors. But Maaskant manages to capture so much story in each of these portraits, that I’m blown away by how quickly he got these shots. If the secret to great portraits is capturing the essence of each person, Maaskant seems to have the magic formula tucked away in his camera."
