Prince Mike Johnson
The Dutch collective ‘Beelddragers’ asked me to make an image for their X10 series. The image could be about anything but as soon as I saw him, I knew I didn’t have to look any further.
Meet Prince Mike Johnson; singer, dancer and motivational speaker. He looks like Michael Jasckson, but more unique. He creates his own astonishing outfits, dances in the streets of The Hague and talks to everyone who is interested. “Do you want to be my manager?” he asks the first time I talk to him. I admit that I’m much more interested in taking his picture. That’s ok too. We make a whole bunch of pictures out on the street. Beelddragers wrote a story about this image and my working method in general, read it here (Dutch).
I’m still meeting up with Prince Mike Johnson every now and then. The things he makes himself are great; videos, screenshots of celebrities, pictures of himself with people from The Hague, speeches, he has a lot of ideas for films… I hope I’ll be able to post about those later too.
