"This picture was taken in Amsterdam on International Pillow Fight Day 2017, an event organized every year in cities all around the world, mostly on April 1st.

It was so much fun to see men, women and children from all kinds of cultural backgrounds
fighting with each other using big fluffy pillows. They were laughing and screaming while
the feathers made you sneeze. While I was taking the picture, I was standing in the middle of it all, occasionally being hit on the head with a pillow while protecting my new M10 with my other hand.

It suddenly got me thinking about all the aggression in the world. Here some people were also showing their aggression – but no one could really get hurt.“
