Three Spakenburg women wearing traditional costumes posed in Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy. The three sisters (in law) Corrie, Hendrikje and Wijmpje Koelewijn have always lived up to the traditions of the little fishertown Spakenburg. They are now witnessing how these traditional ways of living and dressing are dwindling fast.

For 12,5 years, Hans Lemmerman and Inge van Run ( Het Wilde Oog) have photographed these three women in combinations of costume heritage and Dutch art, design and architecture.

The pictures of the Spakenburg Divas were made at various locations in Lloyd Hotel, among which a 5-star room by Joep van Lieshout, Franck Bragigant's red bar, and a meeting room by Scholten & Baijens.
