People from many different countries live, study and work in Eindhoven. Every week, E52 has a talk with an international about what brought them here and what life is like in Eindhoven. This is how we start every Saturday with the story of an international living in Eindhoven. Today we published our 52nd story: a year of interviews with people who came from all over the world to Eindhoven for work, study of love.

Together with photographer Diewke van den Heuvel, I therefore had the privilege this year tot talk to a very diverse group of people. In the articles I regularly speak of we, because we always visit the internationals together and Diewke is always takes active part in the conversations. We ask the internationals where they would like to meet us. Usually this is in their favorite coffee shop at lunch place, but also regularly at work or at home. We are always welcomed with a big smile. Often it is most exciting for the interviewee to take a picture. Fortunately, that tention drops rapidly, with beautiful portraits as a result.
