Consurella Show | 20220703 | Michel van der Burg | 1-memo.com | Brochure of the 1973 visual report I made in Dordrecht, Holland – my first assignment as a photographer – of the Consurella Show’s touring in Holland in 1973-1974.
My next assignment was the autonomous creation of images for a new show design with projection of the images as the decor in these live shows made up of real commercials supplemented with fake commercials. First 10 test shows (early 1973) had attracted ca 5000 visitors from Dutch housewives’ organizations. Another 50 shows were planned to tour in cities all over Holland Sep’73-May’74.
Early Nov ’73 I visited the new show using the slideshow decor of images I had made.
I was a Leiden University student Biochemistry at the time, and invested a new camera for this job – Asahi Pentax SLR camera.

HOLLAND. Rotterdam. September 11, 2011. Taking a pinhole photo of the Erasmus bridge, using a pinhole in a tin can loaded with photographic paper. Darkroom work was done in the SKVR BeeldFabriek – that also supplied the custom made tin can pinhole cameras.
Using a 2nd camera the process was captured for the 1 minute film “tin can pinhole photo”, with original sound and added music called ‘Sonatina Piccola’ (Jan Masséus, composer) performed by the nearby playing Nederlands Jeugd Accordeon Orkest directed by Marc Belder – during this ’24 uur cultuur’ Rotterdam event.
