Often, when I walk to Waterloo station from my place, this man is following and watching me. At first I thought he was ‘another homeless guy’, until one day I saw him together with a security guy I had seen before. The disguise of a homeless person is frequently applied by secret agents, because homeless people often hang around in the street for long hours.
When my camera was wrecked on April 29 (one day before the abdiction on Queens day) in front of the Albert Heijn supermarket, this man was laughing and making fun of it. He was the only bystander who even noticed my camera being damaged.
On the 13th of August 2013, I was just waiting for someone on Weesperstraat, and the same man walked by. He was clearly hanging around the area where I was waiting.
And below the same man, again, on the Weesperstraat. I took the photograph by turning around when he followed me. This picture was taken earlier this summer.
