The Do It Yourselfie Guide - the ultimate guide with 66 rules and 66 identity pictures to capture the best version of yourself.
The artist edition, in collaboration with New Window, exists of 148 identity pictures - 66 with rules in text, 66 with a visual example to accompany the rule. It comes in a smal box, made by hand and signed by the artist.

Kraftwerk will play eight nights in a row in Paradiso in Amsterdam January 16-23. Every night they will play a different album starting with Autobahn (1974). It is difficult to make a decision, but my personal favorites are Radio-Activiti (1975) and Computer World (1981), so I bought tickets for these two shows. Do I mind that Ralf Hütter is the only founding member who is still a member of the band? No, I don’t. The only concern I have is that it is 3-D because I am stereoblind. But who knows, according to Wikipedia there is one known case where stereoblindness was reportedly cured by watching a 3D film. May be if I go all eight nights I will be able to perceive stereoscopic vision.
Doug Rickard: N.A. | Verlag Kettler -
A New American Picture (2010, 2012) by Doug Rickard is a disturbing book and a great example of how Google Street View can be applied by artists. His new book N.A. that will be available soon in a trade ediiton published by Verlag Kettler and D.A.P. is even more disturbing. Especially if you consider that the pictures are completely sourced from YouTube video’s. Again Rickard uses publicly available material from the internet to expose scene’s he otherwise would have never been able to capture. Both books were initially published as limited edition books by the small publisher White-Press.
You could say there are too many photo events coming up in the Netherlands.
So if you plan to visit Unseen, stay two more days and travel by train in two hours to Leeuwarden for the Noorderlicht festival and in one and a half hour to Breda for Breda Photo. Both have plenty of interesting exhibitions with great names. Look up the websites for details. And if you like festivals and like culture, stay a bit longer to visit the Incubate festival, a kind of South by Southwest festival, in Tilburg one and a half hour by train from Amsterdam.
In Geneva there is a nice walk from Petit-Saconnex to Cornavin. The walk takes you from park to park from Parc de Bude to Square Jacob Spon near the railway station. For a walking guide see here.
