Volkskrant journalist Fokke Obbema, after barely surviving a cardiac arrest in 2017, asked existential questions: what is the purpose of life, what is the essence of existence and what does it mean to be human? In a series of critically acclaimed interviews, he discussed this with people from very different professions and backgrounds.
In ‘De zin van het leven. Gesprekken over de essentie van ons bestaan’ (translation: The meaning of life. Conversations about the essence of our existence) of publisher Atlas Contact, Obbema bundles these conversations. The accompanying portraits were made by me. The result is a book full of inspiring answers to questions we all ask ourselves, but rarely answer explicitly.
‘The meaning of life’ will be presented on Friday 27 September during a festive and substantive evening with Fokke Obbema, Pieter van den Blink, Gerard Bodifee, Sarah Durston and music by Stan Vreeken and Julien de Perron.
