Curiosity is the lust of mind, and I like to surrender to the pleasures of my brain. What I basically saying, I curious and proud of it. It is annoying at times and even dangerous depending on the environmental factors, however, it often leads me to unexpecting adventures and hidden treasures like the De Bazaar in Beverwijk (the Netherlands).
De Bazaar in Beverwijk is Europe’s largest indoor market where different cultures all over the world come together to trade goods. It’s massive, impressive and definitely the place to visit to get lost in a totally different world.
What I was wearing
Jacket: Etsy (similar)
Little black dress: Zalando
I heard about De Bazaar three years ago, when a friend of my advised me to visit the Bazaar to shop. At that time I only knew it as the black market and somehow I decided to postpone the visit. When I finally visit De Bazaar last year in search of fabric, I was blown away by the size of the place, the endless possibilities, and the people. I had never seen so many cultures in one place, the medley of different smells and music. It looks like the utopian vision that some politicians and visionaries are trying or tried to achieve, different ethnicities living peacefully next to each other. This melting pot of cultures, styles, and perspective has resulted in a magical place in which Disney can learn from. I mean, where can you customize your own hat, eat Iranian dates, buy a crossbow and more in one place? De Bazaar.
On one of my visits to De Bazaar, I stopped walking around and started to look around, and I saw it was it beautiful. I had the need to shoot some pictures there. So asked the photographer Sandra Reeb-Gruber of the Fotogenoten ( also the curriculum director of my study) to help me out and here are some of the results of the shoot. There are so many things will be posting the rest this coming week.
There is so much to see and experience at De Bazaar, which I will be posting these coming weeks.
