KAAP KOFFIE x KADIR VAN LOHUIZEN
To raise awareness for the climate, and especially the rising sea-level, Kaap Koffie cooperates with world-famous Dutch photographer Kadir van Lohuizen.
Here’s some highlights of his impressive bio:
Kadir van Lohuizen (The Netherlands, 1963) has covered conflicts in Africa and elsewhere, but is probably best known for his long-term projects on the seven rivers of the world, the rising of sea levels, the diamond industry and migration in the Americas.
Kadir has received numerous prizes and awards in photojournalism. In 2000 and 2002 Kadir was both a jury member of the World Press Photo contest and on the supervisory board of the World Press Photo foundation. For the Wasteland project he received 1st World Press Photo Prize in the Environmental category. In 2018, Kadir van Lohuizen and Yuri Kozyrev were the laureates of the 9th Prix Carmignac for Photojournalism, where they undertook a yearlong expedition through the Arctic, documenting the consequences of the climate crisis.
During the long and lonely Corona winter together with Café de Ceuvel and Kaap Koffie Kadir organized an open-air exposition showing some of his work in life-size canvases. In February ’21 Kadir’s book ‘After Us The Deluge’ was presented at Café de Ceuvel.
