Apartments of friends project 2005

In 2005, I was commissioned by Ymere housing cooperation, The House of Anna Frank Foundation, and Amsterdam Escape town Foundation to make a photographic series, later published as part of the book The other house of Anna Frank. The book was dedicated to the transformation of the apartment in which the Frank family lived between 1933-1942 to a historical monument.
Since the end of World War II The apartment was in use, and in 2003 an extensive archive research was made to restore its original pre-WWII look. After the renovations, the apartment was given to Stichting Vluchtstad Amsterdam (Amsterdam Escape Town Foundation).
