“What was your dream job when you were young?” me and Marion, both in our thirties, asked this question to almost 50 people of at least 75 years old. The answers were surprising. No policemen or firemen, but artists, actresses, chefs and even a DJ. They organized suitable clothes and attributes and drove to home cares with a mobile photography studio.

The result is 46 portraits of elderly in their dream profession (and a lot of fun with the elderly during the photoshoots). An exhibition of the pictures traveled around Netherlands and in the photo-book there’s a story to every picture about why their dream job didn’t land. The stories aren’t sad; almost everyone enthusiastically told what they did instead and how they loved and still love their lives.
