Weekly update #4

Weekends

Every weekend thousands of people storm Amsterdam for either shopping tours, sightseeing or just to enjoy the city. I was commissioned to photograph this periodic phenomenon and went to the most busy street the city has to offer, the Kalverstraat. When I got there, I didn’t really know how to photograph it. What would be a good picture? What’s the actual situation here? Many people in a tiny street? What disturbs me the most? So I put my camera back in the bag and just followed the crowd for a while and became more and more uncomfortable, until the point I became claustrophobic. Then I started shooting!
