In the book ‘On fairies and bullet holes’ (Over elfjes en kogelgaten) together with journalist Anneke de Bundel I travelled through Norway, Iceland, Bosnia, Iraq, Ireland and Scotland. And the preface? Written by the more than fantastic internationally renowned photographer Jimmy Nelson.

We met people in remote areas. Areas where volcanoes, violence and loneliness can erupt anytime and where people do what they do best: survive. Like the shipbuilder who converses regularly with fairies, or the Syrian refugee who still serves coffee in gold-rimmed cups or the mountain guide navigating between roadside bombs and a mother threatening to marry him off. Nature is their enemy and their ally. Or as the Kurds put it: “Only the mountains love the Kurds.”


“Daydreaming of traveling in distant countries, getting to know the locals. With wonderful stories and beautiful photos. The book On fairies and bullet holes is highly recommended! – Raymond Rutting, freelance photographer for de Volkskrant en National Geographic.

“This book On fairies and bullet holes is written in the best tradition of VPRO’s  foreign affairs program ‘Diogenes’. Go temporarily live with people who experience the crisis at first hand. There you see the mirror of world politics. Anneke de Bundel and Nicole Franken are doing just that in “On fairies and bullet holes. Must read! ” – Lex Runderkamp, Travelling reporter Arab world for the NOS Dutch Broadcasting Company.
