life begins where the comfort zone ends


'Au!' is the title of my new photo book on Suriname. Today film director Jean van de Velde received the first copy of the book during a presentation in Amsterdam.

To shoot for this new book I spent 3 months in Suriname's jungle. The book documents the lives of the people that live in this vast piece of Amazon rainforest. Click here for an extended preview.

To celebrate the publication of this new book there will be an exhibition of Thijs' Surinam images in Pakhuis De Zwijger in Amsterdam during the whole month of November.
