Photos

The photos of the 2018 Annual Meeting are online! For those who noticed during the event, some pictures were taken on Day 1 with the right equipment and a good photographer’s eye: thank you Erik-Jan van Kesteren! About the photos of Day 2 you may notice a sudden drop in the quality of the photos since it was up to the board members themselves to shoot with the a camera.
