Last March Philip Brink, art director and part of Philip & Hugo, joined his girlfriend, Marieke van der Velden, to Afghanistan. She was making a photo documentary on everyday life in Kabul – which explains the title: “A Monday in Kabul.”
To make himself useful during the trip, he decided to create a short film about the project. Brink was, until last year, working for Wieden+Kennedy and is now freelancing with his creative partner Hugo van Woerden. At the time the team decided to work freelance to have the freedom to pick up these kind of projects.
This 7-minute film makes us jealous; what a great adventure. Van der Velden’s collection, together with Brink’s film, are now on display at the Foto Festival Naarden, until June 23rd.
