MODEL-FOR-A-DAY: “I had to step back regularly and look at the big picture, or about my 1st year of PhD”
This time we went to see the Maas from the other side. Our guest this time is Laurien, who is also our intern, of whom you have probably heard about before 😉 The story this time is not so much about the Research itself, since Laurien is in her first year of PhD, she already laid her topic nicely on our blog. This time, we wanted to know her journey into PhD. …read the full story here
The location of our second photoshoot is one of the main streets in Maastricht: Maasboulevard. It is main because it runs through the junction between Stationstraat, a street that takes you from the train station directly to the city centre… and with thee mmm, street itself. Basically, it’s at the cross-road of things. And also! not least important, it flows next to the river bank of the Maas. This is where you can have a promenade and buy a ticket for a boat ride to Belgium..voila! or should I better say, gezellig!
Before anything, this is not how Researchers dress for work. I do not want to make Research sexy, neither do I want to promote a distorted image of people doing Research. I just want to make sure to remind that Researchers are creative people 🙂
Since this brand name is born in Maastricht, the Netherlands, when we were posing for Fashion & Research Month on Researchista (….out of this and other concerns…..), the time came to explore what Maastricht has to offer. I also prefer to call this project “An ode to Maastricht: Researchers’ perspective”. These series of photo-shoots are carried out on the streets of Maastricht to explore together some history behind the walls of this beautiful medieval town. And yes, it has a hidden agenda, I want to shade a different light over the image that Researchers have. Sometimes maybe too much… light, but I mean well. Stay tunned! Researchista_fashionista does not stop there 😉
