Hi I’m Francesca, a photographer based in Den Haag.

  • I can’t thank you Instagram enough for letting me know her @studiosyk 💛
  • Last week I had the chance to take some pictures of the talented dutch artist Susan Ruiter.
It’s hard not to be impressed by the bright colors, the round shapes and the way she draws people and animals.

  • Rozenhoedkaai view💛
  • The Gravensteen is a medieval castle dates to 1180 and was the residence of the Counts of Flanders until 1353. 
It was subsequently re-purposed as a court, prison, mint, and even as a cotton factory. 
This castle was also a symbol of abuse of power, feudal repression and horrific torture methods. 
It was restored over 1893–1903 and is now a museum and a major landmark in the city. 🏰 💛
  • Hello Gent💗
  • It's so easy now, 'cause you got friends you can trust
  • The “Restricted Images” exhibition offers a new reading of the Australian colonial and indigenous history.
In the past 7 years Patrick Waterhouse worked in the Warlpiri area in central Australia. He took images of different communities and he built an extensive archive of colonial representations (photos, maps, flags). In 2015, he started a collaboration with local artists from the Warlukurlangu Art Center. 
The artists got to work with the material by applying the traditional Aboriginal technique of dot painting. 
Isn’t that wonderful?

This exhibition will be there for you till this Sunday!
  • This sculpture, located in front of the Cathedral, is based on the classic novel ‘A Dog of Flanders’ by Ouida and it represents Nello and Patrasche.
Nello, an orphan poor boy, who lives with his grandfather, one day find and save from death Patrasche, an abandoned dog. They become true friends. 
After the death of his grandfather, having no place to stay and a huge passion for Rubens paintings, Nello wishes to go to the cathedral of Antwerp (to see Rubens' The Elevation of the Cross and The Descent of the Cross). Unfortunately the exhibition is not free and he's out of money.
On the night of Christmas Eve, he and Patrasche find the door of the church open. His dream become reality.
The next morning, the boy and his dog are found frozen to death, in each other’s arms, in front of one of the paintings. 
Despite the sad ending, this statue is a celebration of pure and unconditional friendship💛
