Frans Zwartjes passed away last week. Frans Zwartjes is the reason purge.xxx was founded; my single greatest influence, a teacher and a friend.

In May 2017, EYE Film Institute Netherlands produced an event to mark Frans' 90th birthday. At the encouragement of curators Simona Monizza and Anna Abrahams, footage documenting mine and Frans' sessions was collated in tribute to him. It feels appropriate to share this now.
