This was an assignment for the municipality of Smallingerland, in the Netherlands and the municipality of Gobabis, in Namibia.
Portraits of Gobabis is a photographic essay about an ongoing twenty-year long friendship between the municipalities of Smallingerland (the Netherlands) and Gobabis (Namibia). In honour of the twenty-year friendship between the two cities and the development aid projects that they are working on together, these photographs were exhibited in the Town Hall of Drachten in the Netherlands. The response and feedback from the public and the municipalities was so positive, that the exhibition was extended up to six times and is still there today.
A book was also printed with photographs and biographies of all te people that play vital roles within the friendship and collaboration between Gobabis and Drachten.
