Publisher Das Mag in collaboration with Top Notch present the photobook ‘De Amsterdammers’ by Maarten van der Kamp. The book is accompanied with an essay from the renown Mexican writer Valeria Luiselli. Maarten van der Kamp started as a writer for Trouw. After a failed career as novelist, a short lived modelling stint, paired with alcohol abuse, he wound up homeless and dedicated himself to street photography. van der Kamp would spend 8 hours a day, 5 days a week roaming the streets with his analog Leica in hand to capture things of interest, documenting life in Amsterdam today. On November 4th, his book ‘De Amsterdammers’ will be presented at his exhibition in Vriend van Bavink where all 150 photographs from the series will be on display until November 19th.
