Achterland - Voorland (2005)


In 2005 I was asked by the Fries Museum and the Leeuwarder Courant to explore their region. I was hardly familiar with this Northern province of the Netherlands. I travelled over a period of 6 months to the unknown Friesland. I made combinations of photoworks, I wanted to find out how that would work. One is used to do this designing a book but how does it work in a presentation on a wall?

I tried to express my love for this open and beautiful landscape, its amazing lack of inhabitants for Dutch standards, the discrepancy with the dense traffic and population in the West and some forebears of change, adopting to certain customs common in the West.
