EEN STAD. Amsterdam vanaf het spoor gefotografeerd 1988-1989. Deel 1, 2., 2013
Amsterdam photographed from railways. Two volumes. One contains pictures in color, the other - balck and white images.
Between November 17, 1988 and March 19, 1989 I photographed Amsterdam from the track. It is a good way of moving through a city - without a pressure that you experience when you walk through streets. Looking at a city from railways gives an opportunity to see it differently, from a distance. You get an overview, you contemplate in order to understand urban structures and life, you get time to think. The sounds of the city blow occasionally over the rails. As if they were trying to engage me in the city life.
The pictures date back to 25 years ago. Every now and then within these years I have been using one or more photos in some art project on my website, and finally formed the project World Works, which includes a library that these two volumes are a part of.
