For 80 years Ria van Dijk has been bang on target. To mark this impressive milestone in almost every picture #7 has been re-released in 2016 in the form of a special anniversary edition with eight new shots and an exhibition in Tilburg.
Ria van Dijk shot her first photo at the Tilburg fair in 1936 when she was 16 years old. It started at in Ria’s hometown of Tilburg, but throughout the years she followed the fair from town to town. It became a tradition and Ria continued shooting (guns and photos) year after year. And the bullseye is that Ria kept every single photo as if they were her trophies.
In 2008 Erik Kessels and Joep Eijkens collected Ria’s photographs in the book in almost every picture #7. In 2016 Ria returned to the fair and shot on July 22nd her 80th photo at the opening of the Tilburgse Kermis. For the occasion, KesselsKramer and City Marketing Tilburg published this celebratory updated edition of in almost every picture #7.
