In a photographic competition “‘Israel Through foreign lenses” , Charlotte Veldkamp, the daughter of the Netherlands Ambassador to Israel, won the second prize. Charlotte sent 5 pictures to the exhibition, amongst others ‘Tel Aviv Thought’ and ‘In the heart of Tel Aviv’.
The political attaché at the Netherlands Embassy, Annemijn van den Broek, and three members of the cultural section attended the event last Wednesday on behalf of Charlotte, as she and her family are currently abroad.
Ambassador Caspar Veldkamp said: “The Netherlands has such a long and rich history when it comes to photography with famous Dutch artists such as Anton Corbijn and Erwin Olaf. Therefor when my daughter decided to go from taking family pictures to a more artistic approach I was immediately enthusiastic. I am so proud to see that her talent - at such a young age - is recognized by the The Diplomatic Club.”
