Peter (1)Angie and I attend the Dutch ambulance trade show held in Apeldoorn as guests of Frans, Fred, and Saskia of FACE. It was a wonderful show where we made many new contacts. Frans has some interesting ideas about running a booth. On the first two days, he had Edo Draaijer come in and do caricatures for booth visitors. This really “drew them in”, as it were!


During a lull in booth activity, I sat down and had Edo draw me. Aside from the camera and the iPhone, I don't see any resemblance at all.

I returned the favour with two shots of Edo. The first was a play on the ‘artist as a subject’ theme, where Peter, Saskia, and Angie put Edo in the hot seat and pretended to draw him. The second was a more ‘normal’ portrait of Edo, who was as good at posing as he was and drawing.

I had a whole series of photographs of visitors to the booth as well as some of those who helped out on the first day. Unfortunately, all of those shots were grossly out of focus and I didn’t discover this until I returned back to Halifax. That’s really unfortunate because Frans was a wonderful host and the guys from RAVU were spectacular helping explain our product to their compatriots. The only shot of team RAVU is the opening shot of Peter, at the top of this post.
