Amsterdam by Numbers




Eijkelboom, known for his visual anthropological studies on urban fashion, has now elaborated on another phenomenon: people wearing shirts with numbers. What do they want to communicate? What do these numbers mean to these people? Not much, most likely. As in his previous project what Eijkelboom detected is another expression of the banality and surrealism of our everyday life. He is a collector of previously neglected associations picturing a city full of coincidences and connections. In that way, this book – designed by Erik Kessels – is also a tribute to the rich tradition of street photography.
