On the 7th of March 2020 I was able to defend the photobook, I made, during the BMK ballotage in Rotterdam (Photomuseum) with positive result. The jury was unanimous about the series. Thee BMK (Bond Master Klasse) is highest possible award within the dutch Fotobond. For me it was the 2nd BMK title, on the 7th of March I received the 1st BMK title, for the serie 'In the shadow of voices'.
