Van de grens

We are knowledge-oriented beings. But: what can we explain, completely and rationally? What phenomena elude our rational view of the world, and remain hidden behind the veil of the mysterious? The Photographer acts as intermediary between the rational approach of the ages of enlightenment and a romantic-age transfiguration, creating a synthesis between the aspects of modern-day science and the desire for natural beauty.
“van de grens” is a series of photographs capturing the identity of Enschede(Netherlands) which, as a border town, is not only geographically at the intersection of two cultural regions, but also reflecting the current development of the town as a place of knowledge and culture.
