I’m not much of a bar-person, but if and when I do go for a drink, I love to come here. It’s simply the best brown café in Amsterdam. A little off the beaten track, in the middle of a residential neighborhood, you’d really have to go out of your way to come here. Nienke, the proprietress is what we call in Dutch “een topwijf ”. With her warm heart and no nonsense attitude she makes you feel right at home, whether you’re a regular and part of the bar’s furniture, or just pop in occasionally, just like myself.

One of the few professional hardware stores in the city centre of Amsterdam with a great knowledgable staff. Whatever you’re building problem, they have the answer for you, both in advice and in material solutions. I just really love hanging out there. For me it’s one of the best places to get inspiration from. When building a set, I usually go there with a vague idea of what I want to make and then fill in the details by looking at the materials they have.

Gorgeous cinema near the Rembrandtsplein. Built in the early 1920s in a very rich architectural style that mixes Jugendstil, the Amsterdam School and Art Deco, the cinema was meant to be a temple for cinematography. The entrance and the main auditorium (Zaal 1) are just simply stunning. It’s been recently restored in its former splendor and is now owned by big distributor Pathé Cinemas. Though a lot of people have been criticizing the fact that a beautiful cinema as this is now exploited by a big commercial chain, I sort of like that fact that also the big blockbusters are usually screened here. It feels like the old days where I imagine you’d simply get overwhelmed by the place and the film and its technique. So my advice is: whatever (crap) plays in Zaal 1, just buy a bag of popcorn, sit back and enjoy.

Smack in the middle of tourist district and right on the border of the red light district. My good friend (and super talented photographer Qiu Yang, check it out folks!) is part of the furniture there and because of him, we - his friends - are allowed to order outside of the menu. So none of that westernized mild gruel, but the real spicy tongue-numbing-deal. Before going out to parties, after gallery openings or just when we’re hungry, our bunch always gathers there. Good times!

Just a fantastic spot on the edge of the city. Its connection of the Amsterdam-Rijn Canal to the IJ, Amsterdam’s big open water, that was once part of the North Sea, but now dammed in by the Dutch. Sometimes it’s just a relief to leave the prettiness and the cuteness of the Amsterdam canals behind and experience some space. Few people come out here and in summertime it’s just a delightful spot to have a picnic and watch the boats come in.

Popel Coumou lives and works in Amsterdam and studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Her work consists out of analog photographs of collaged spaces that hint at human presence. Through her use of lighting she transforms the collages into 3 dimensional spaces that seem both natural and unhinged.

I am Ryan Koopmans (BA, MFA) a photographer driven by the interdisciplinary practices of geography, art history, and psychology. Born in Amsterdam (1986) I was raised on Vancouver Island Canada, completed my undergraduate education at UBC in Vancouver, and in 2012 received a Masters of Fine Art Photography & Video at The School of Visual Arts in New York City. I am primarily interested in photographing the points of intersection where the natural and manmade converge. I'm drawn to surreal structures in our world's megacities and urban landscapes. Formal aesthetic qualities in their geometry, repetition and saturation help me illustrate the poetry of form in these fantastical locations. Based in Amsterdam, I work on assigned and independent photography projects around the world. I also shoot with commercial clients as well as architects, magazines, and other publications. For my advertising work, visit www.sirencreatives.com where I am the head of photography.

Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to become an illustrator. The first time my parents asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I said; 'tekenares' (this is the Dutch word for a draughtswoman). I wasn't familiar with the term illustrator yet, but I was sure that's what I wanted to be. Now, twenty years later, I'm working as a freelance illustrator based in Amsterdam. I've been living here for over 5 years, and I'm still in love with the city.

I am a graphic designer based in Amsterdam. My work is conceptual as well as intuitive. I try to tell stories with my works, and to get the viewer into a contemplative state of mind. I believe in a refined way of designing, in which materials and typography are important elements. I like to wander and I'm curious about almost everything.
