WHO is behind the scenes of SITTING ON A SIDEWALK?
My name is Sophie Tooten
I was bron in Tilburg, a city in the south of the Netherlands. Here lies the soil of my interest in looking at the daily life around me and marvel about the abnormal things that are happening in the so called normal life. After a while I got interested in the daily life further and even far away. How would I look at that life. Could it become ‘normal’ for me although it is so different? And would it change my perspective on my common everyday life?
A lot of questions I wanted answers for. So I travelled, mostly to Asia and looked at life. And I found out that the best way to do that is with patient, by sitting somewhere. Preferably a sidewalk anywhere in the world.
This is the story of my life, but also about my work. I like to look closely at the stories that I am telling. To take time to find the core of the story and than, with great care capture this story into a video or photo.
