The Hoy Boys
The Hoy Boys.jpeg

Twin photojournalists lead us back to a pre-digital era, when Americans read newspapers and facts mattered.

Working class twin brothers Tom and Frank Hoy hustled up copyboy jobs in 1953 and became White House News Photographers for two major Washington DC newspapers. Frank shot pictures for The Washington Post, and Tom did the same for The Evening Star. Their story is the story of American journalism when it mattered most. Tom and Frank’s work was seen by hundreds of thousands of people daily, and as we rediscover their iconic photographs The Hoy Boys provides a lens through which we view the complexities of the past, and we gain a perspective on the chaos of the current media landscape.

ANATEMA -(Mature Audiences)

An ordinary day in the common life of Tomàs and Carme, a middle age married couple who are living in a small village with their daughter, Emma, who suffers a brain paralysis. Aparently, an ordinary day…





The concept of this music video is "Anatopism", presenting something that is "out of place", such as our hopes and dreams that sometimes are in the middle of nowhere and sometimes are out of place Rebecca's honest message in her music is translated into reality in this video clip. Rebecca Reijman @rebecca_reijman gave her all in working in front of the camera. For more than 5 days we went around to places she had never been before, meeting new people and environments that were unfamiliar to her.

A taste of the reality of Jakarta's life is presented here as a historical record that was captured by us through Rebecca's enthusiastic message for all Indonesian people to not give up and continue to dream.
