The fascinating and enchanting beauty Tess in an environment filled with objects and beliefs from the collective memory, overflowing man's heart with nostalgia. The attitude and supreme-swag of the Scum Men - the owners - evoke images of gunslingers who fatally watch each other in the whites of the eyes. Or are they just two welcoming hardworking entrepreneurs seeking a ‘fictional hammer’ to give their presence in the photograph a natural feel? It remains yet unproven. Tessy with ‘messy-on-purpose hair’ in an environment, where during opening hours no women are allowed and where every hair is cut with the precision and skill of a Victorian gunsmith … a great exceptional situation, that created a ‘social media riot' because their followers called on the ‘Scum-decorum’. The two gentlemen silenced them, it was a (closed) Monday after all. And this is exactly how, time and again, the gentlemen know how to create a buzz with their incredible quibble.
She studied silver photography techniques at the 'Stedelijk Instituut voor Sierkunsten en Ambachten' in Antwerp and thought she'd make career of it. Thus she started working under the name of Fotofloor in 1994. Then she met Mike, a music-mad handyman who spent hours on his computer creating soundtracks for fashion shows. Floor became interested in things digital, while Mike had a go at photography. Love did the rest. Today the couple operates as a well-oiled creativity-machine, with Floor behind the camera and Mike in front of the screen. Working as signature photographers for leading magazines, international brands and record labels. They are known for their celebrity portraits and sell their art through several galleries worldwide.
Behind this record-label type moniker, Mike van der Giessen and Floor Stoop are an inseparable pair of photographers who now have been working together for over ten years. Floor has always been mad about photography and used to create fake holiday pics as a kid, featuring family members, including even absent ones.
