Photo by Luca de Benedetti

We’re proud to present you our next artist-in-residence: Luca de Benedetti. In the coming weeks Luca and his camera will be part of the Bajesdorp community, documenting the story of a co√∂peration of people who want to buy their own village. The result will be shown via several internet channels as well in Bajesdorp by the end of July.

Luca is a writer/filmmaker/photographer/traveller/pasta-lover/name-forgotter who roamed the world for the past 3 years, visiting 5 different continents. He is constantly looking for stories to tell, giving a voice to those that normally don’t get the spotlight, looking for opinions outside of the mainstream. When he visited Amsterdam, one month ago, ‘he fell in love with the alternative scene’ as he said. ‘In this city where gentrification seems unavoidable I decided to document it, in the hope of helping its preservation.’

You can see one of Luca’s previous documentairies here and on his website.
