2016 - From the 1950’s onwards Tito spent his summers at Brijuni, a small archipelago along the west coast of the Istrian region of Croatia. As I see it, this former summer residence embodies the beginning and the end of the Yugoslavian dream, in which Tito firmly believed. In September 2016 I extensively photographed the summer residence of the late Josip Broz Tito, former president of Yugoslavia as it was then. With the help of a Russian researcher, months of patience and the eventual permission of the Croatian prime minister I was able to gain access to this unique place. During the Les Rencontre, Festival de la Photographie in Arles France it had its première.

2001 – 2003 / 2013-2015: Friso created the unique opportunity for himself to work in the heavily guarded Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Friso documented a look behind the scenes. This project was a successful solo exhibition in the Fotomuseum Den Haag in 2005 / 2006. It was partly funded by Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst. The portraits were nominated for the ECB Photo Award and were published in the catalogue 'Europe' and exhibited in Cologne and Frankfurt in 2008.

Amsterdam in woorden
2008: solo exhibition of 60 writers’ portraits at the OBA (Amsterdam public library ) and on billboards throughout Amsterdam during the Unesco event ‘Amsterdam Boekenstad’. Atheneum Polak published these portraits in the book ‘Amsterdam in woorden’.

Dutchbat III
2006 – 2010: a series of 68 portraits of former soldiers of the UN battalion that witnessed the drama of Srebrenica in 1995. Then the project resulted in a solo exhibition in Gemak, The Hague. It was funded by the BKVB (Dutch Foundation for Visual Arts), and published as a book ‘Dutchbat III’. The preface is by Ad van Liempt and all the personal stories are written by Friso. Published by WBooks.

Since 2012 Friso is working on an overview of the Dutch composers of modern classical music.
