Since 17 years, photographer Ruben Timman portrays people from all around the world to capture the beauty of Humanity. He and his camera made a stop in Amsterdam Nieuw-West, the home base of ICK. While he made the portraits, we asked the Nieuw – West citizens what ‘The body in Revolt’ means for them.
1,5 years ago, I suffered from a burn-out. My body and mind were not connected anymore and my body turned itself against me. This was the ultimate body in revolt. I took me some time to accept what was happening to me but once I balanced my body and mind again, I could move on – Daniel Nicoletti (28)
Sometimes I cannot express my emotions with words so I use my body. Sometimes it is hard to describe what is going on in my head so I dance to free myself of these feelings – Lynn Morgan (12)
I associate ‘The body in revolt’ with how the world around me has changed. I’ve experienced different political systems and wars and I see how history keeps on repeating itself, that scares me. – Chris Relleke (93)
