Interview with the photographer Marie Cécile Thijs

What makes this series special to you?

I enjoy making a portrait series for this Rotterdam University because I work and live in Rotterdam myself. Next to this, I fancy the interesting subject: all the different careers, as well as to picture these specific activities the alumni do every day with passion.

You studied at a university yourself, how much has this contributed to your current career?
In my studies I have learned to think in a conceptual way. This is also an advantage in my current life as photographer. Furthermore, I see the Law studies as a beautiful, kind of philosophical studies.

From the 28th of May onwards, your photo's will be exhibited in the Erasmus Pavillion on campus Woudestein. What do you expect from this exhibition?
I hope that the students will be inspired by these portraits, which might prepare them for their own choices they are going to make. The diversity in opportunities is wide, these students can choose so many different paths. You see this reflected in the alumni.
