2008: a reportage on Ilja Leonard Pfeiffer in Genova during one weekend . He is a Dutch poet and novelist. Till the summer of 2008 he used to live in Leiden, The Netherlands. In that year his girlfriend convinced him to cycle together to Rome. Totally unprepared they started this tour de force. On their way they passed Genova and an instant love for this labyrinthic old city overwhelmed them and made them decide to stay there and celebrate live.
2001 – 2003: Friso had the unique opportunity to work in the heavily guarded Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Friso recorded a view from behind the scenes. This project became a successful solo exhibition in the Fotomuseum Den Haag in 2005 / 2006. It was supported by Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst. The portraits were nominated for the ECB Photo Award and were published in the catalogue 'Europe' and exhibited in Cologne and Frankfurt in 2008.
2000: four years after the sudden death of Dutch composer Tristan Keuris, everything was in the same position as the last day he left his studio in 1996. A miracle to find this room where time has stood still. The room was dusty and insects were scattered around.
The impulse to capture seemed well planned. A few months after, a leakage in the roof damaged the room as well as the piano. The end of a rare monument.
