This summer my collection of company photobooks, mainly seminal photobooks published by captains of industry in postwar Holland, as well as annual reports and derivations of the genre, has been sold to the renowned collector Manfred Heiting (Malibu, CA).  Prior to the sale a salon was held on June 16 in my office space in Amsterdam.

Right now I am preparing a chapter on the history of Dutch photography from 1939 to 1969 for the encycpledia A History of European Photograhy Volume II 

Another work in progress is An Anthology: Photobooks on Found Photographs, an online database to be accessible and consulted in 2013. See for a preview:
