During an expedition in Bolivia he met his partner Marjolijn van Steeden (1989). Since that time, they have lived and worked together.
From 1993 The Netherlands became an important theme in their work.
This led to the successful book Visions of the Netherlands (1997).
In 2000, Marjolijn and Frans began a new Sahara project which resulted in the title Sahara, Land Beyond Imagination (2005) – the crown on their ‘desert work’. Unilever then commissioned the pair to produce their 75th anniversary book, Unilever Matters (2006), which illustrates the activities of the multinational company in fourteen countries.
