Profits from Famous City Amsterdam dedicated to cancer research
Marte Visser decided to publish Famous City Amsterdam to raise money for Hubrecht Institute, where Dr Jacco van Rheenen directs a cancer research laboratory. Visit the Famous City Amsterdam website.
Famous City Amsterdam (English)
Portraits of famous artists, musicians and academics about Amsterdam
Apart from contributing delightfully to Amsterdam’s cultural life, Famous City Amsterdam also contributes in an important way to the fight against cancer. All profits from the sale of the book are dedicated to support Dr Jacco Van Rheenen’s research into metastasis at Hubrecht Instituut.
Marte Visser has assembled an array of international celebrities from the worlds of art, music and academia, all of whom have a special connection with Amsterdam and are featured here in a wonderful series of visual and textual portraits. Some are stars who have regularly performed in the city, others have a particular view of the city based on their academic work, and they range from astronaut to actor, and from dancer to judge.
