In 1995 and 1996 Cary Markerink and I worked together with journalist Tracy Metz on Snelweg > Highways in the Netherlands. We established the foundation Ideas On Paper to this publish book and forthcoming publications.

The first exhibition of Snelweg was in 1996 in the Kunsthal in Rotterdam. Snelweg > Highways in the Netherlands was included in the traveling exhibition on Dutch artificial landscape Nature as Artifice. Snelweg has been shown in the Kröller-Müller Museum in the Netherlands (2007), Neuen Pinakothek München, Germany (2008), George Eastman House Rochester, NY (2009) and Aperture Gallery, New York (2009).

In 2006 Snelweg > Highways in the Netherlands was included in Parr and Badger The Photobook: A History - Volume 2.

A selection of Snelweg is included in the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
