Note:First edition January 1975. 'Houweling has spent thirty years of his life educating young artists at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. He also founded the One Minute Film Festival, versions of which can be seen all over the world. Back in the early seventies, Houweling was making photo-based typologies of Amsterdam, documenting the city by recording parts of the urban landscape others ignored. After creating a large number of images, he assembled them to create a certain rhythm. His collages have a strong graphic feel to them, and it?s his choice of categories that make his work truly beautiful. Most of these Amsterdam-based works are gathered in a book called 700 Cents, commissioned by the city of Amsterdam to celebrate their 700th anniversary. Even though these photographs were taken in the 1970s, their playfulness, humour and passion survive to this day'. (Erik Kessels).
