The Netherlands and the EU Presidency

E-zine The Presidency in pictures

Cliché has it that a picture is worth a thousand words. That is why over 7,000 photos were taken during the Netherlands EU Presidency. Pictures that tell a compelling story, but one that is not so easily told in words. That is why these images are so powerful: they provide a visual testimony to many aspects of the Presidency that were relatively unknown to the outside world.

This e-zine pays homage to the power of images, reprinted here without further comment. We’ve asked our host photographers to make their own personal collection of favorites. This e-zine is a tribute to all those who have worked so hard in the past six months, whether out in the spotlight or behind the scenes. And it celebrates the work of our two guest photographers, Martijn Beekman and Valerie Kuypers
