ISK

To celebrate forty years of special classes for newcomers in the Netherlands (Internationale Schakelklas), I took a group of high school students of Saenredam College to the tourist attraction nearby: the Zaanse Schans. The photos and interviews were made into postcards, which were handed out at the ISK symposium. Read more about this project on my blog.
