    This story is inspirational. Love it: "Wandering through the village on her bicycle, Kuiper visited all 79 homes, in search of individuals with a unique passion. What she found was an entirely different side to the neighbourhood she grew up in and the people she grew up with. Armed with a gracious smile and her trusty camera, Kuiper proceeded to photograph the citizens of her hometown, showcasing their individuality and diversity of talent. The end result was Vinkega, a touching series of portraits of the small Friesian village.

    “Do what you want to do and dare to choose what is in your heart. That sounds so logical, but it’s not entirely easy,” Kuiper said during the opening of her photo exhibition at the Vinkega church (June 2010). “I noticed that all the people that live here dared to choose what was in their hearts.” In many ways, her subjects helped her do the same. Shortly after the exhibition, Kuiper’s photographs were published as a book, which immediately sold-out. At this point, she was absolutely sure that she wanted to pursue photography."
