Welcome to Whatever the Weather, an initiative to inspire meaningful encounters.
My name is Bruno van den Elshout. I live and work as visual artist in the seaside city of The Hague, The Netherlands. In 2018, I spent 144 days on the beach with 144 different people, each meeting leading to a (self-)portrait taken by my travel companion at the end of the day.
Through Whatever the Weather, I wished to explore the following two questions:
How do I inspire meaningful encounters, reaching beyond my own bubble and comfort zone?
What does the act of meeting meaningfully contribute to life, and to the bigger scheme of things?
I wish you a pleasant visit to this website, and hope you will enjoy meeting the people I met.
