Blueprint of Grey, Avenue Magazine, September 1986
“My picture had been displayed for more than two months on the noticeboard of Ulla Models, while my life as a poor student continued as usual.
Then, unexpectedly, came a phone call from photographer Bart van Leeuwen.
Apparently he had seen the snapshot hanging on the wall, and liked it.
I went over to his studio, and showed him my other photographs; just two or three, all I had. Much to my surprise, he asked me if I could join him the following week on a trip to France for a photo shoot. The rest is history.” – Linda Spierings in 40 Years of Dutch Magazine Photography
