KiKa stands for Children cancer free. In the Netherlands, there are hundreds of children diagnosed with cancer every year, one in four children doesn't survive. KiKa believes that this should improve and can improve. Kika raises funds for innovative research and other activities in the field of children's cancer, focused on less pain during treatments, more healing, and a higher quality of life at a later stage.

For this initiative of KiKa no less than fifty photographers visited children with cancer or children who have had cancer. Their special meeting has led to an exquisite collection of unique photos which can be obtained exclusively at Catawiki from 3 to 24 April, where the full proceeds including 9% buyer commission will be donated to KiKa and the Prinses Máxima Centre in Utrecht.


I consider this one of the most beautiful pictures I've taken this day because it is a clear photo and it says a lot. The lion stands out, he looks at you but not in a mean way, in a sweet way. I think animals are beautiful, because an animal is always different, every minute it changes. Animals make me feel safer. They will give you a sense of confidence. I have chosen this picture because the lion is the King of the animals, but also because he is so strong. If you get sick you fight to get better, this also makes you strong because you have only one goal and that is to be better.
