Fool 56 – Ellen Rutgeerts


As is often the case, the one who normally handles the camera is almost never in the images themselves. That’s why Ellen asked me to follow her and her family for a week, and create a portrait of them. Including her.

A busy week awaited me when I arrived full of scout activities, swimming lessons, doctor visits and more. As an added bonus I even got to brush up my piano skills!

Hello, I'm Maarten.

With Fools With Dreams I travel the world by trading my services as a pro photographer for a warm place to sleep, some food and a (zeppelin) ride to the next location with those who are following their dreams, those who are called fools by those who don’t know.
