Impressive homage to the West Frisian Islands by photographer Jeroen Hofman



“Moving from A to B with the ferry across the open water feels grandiose. Standing at the railing on the outer deck, the mainland disappearing behind you and the island slowly looming up in front of you, something strange happens. A tranquillity came over me that I had never experienced before. A new world lay at my feet.”

 

— Jeroen Hofman

 

Photographer Jeroen Hofman worked for years in all weathers on this magnum opus, capturing the Dutch islands in monumental images like a contemporary painter. All the photos were taken from an aerial platform, which enabled him to capture the landscape and the horizon in a very special way.

 

An island has a mythical appeal to man and the imagination. This book celebrates and depicts the longing for an island as a place of rest, nature and seclusion.

 

With text contributions by journalist and writer Arnold van Bruggen, who lives on Texel and made the iconic book The Sochi Project together with Rob Hornstra, and by Willemijn van der Zwaan, curator at Fotomuseum Den Haag.

 

Publication at the solo exhibition of the same name at Fotomuseum Den Haag, from 19 March until 19 June 2022.
