Posing in Amsterdam

Best theme photo
Jury: Edwin Becker, head curator of exhibitions at the Van Gogh Museum
Prize: I Amsterdam City Card for 3 days and the catalogue of the exhibition

Edwin Becker: "This photo merits the theme prize because it so wonderfully reflects the theme of a number of photos in the Snapshot exhibition: people being photographed in the mirror. The camera is really a sort of mirror being held up to us, and then there is the twist of the girl appearing in the mirror as she is looking at a painting (which mirrors reality). And there is also the "double pose". The person in the photo is posing, and looking at a man in the painting who also posed in turn for the artist. In short:  an ingeniously devised photo, and a perfect reflection of the theme! "
