The Volendam New Year's fire was a café fire in the Dutch town of Volendam in the 2000–2001 New Year's night. The fire began early on New Year's Day 2001 and caused the death of 14 young people. There were in all 241 people admitted to hospital, 200 of whom suffered serious burns.
I had the honour to photograph 4 amazing women, 16 years after the fire. This project is called ‘life force’ and represents the strength, positivism and persistence these 4 beautiful women stand for.
