Studio Aleppo – Issa Touma and Koos Breukel

Design and production: Paradox(Tiago Rosado)
Portraits: Koos Breukel
Photography: Luuk Kramer

In September 2016, Amsterdam had the kick off of this European project with star photographer (and Amsterdam inhabitant) Koos Breukel and the Syrian photographer and festival organiser Issa Touma. During Unseen Photo Festival and Fair (2016), Koos Breukel installed his photo studio on 17 and 18 September at Felix Meritis. Issa Touma worked on 19 and 20 September in Spaarndammerbuurt. Portraits were printed and framed on site, resulting in a monumental portrait gallery at Felix Meritis and a small scale portrait gallery on the windows of Effe bij Moeder An in Spaarndammerbuurt, on view during the festival.
