This is Not Fryslân

This series is a result of a commissioned residency in Fryslân, a northern Dutch province. The project, curated by
Feico Hoekstra, invited 6 photographers to explore the province for a month from an “outsider’s perspective”. The other photographers invited were Martin CreggDerek HendersonAnna KahnLisa Robinson and Bukkie Dos Santos. You can see a short video clip here.

Being thrown into unfamiliar territories forces you to really think about what it means to photograph and re-present a place, familiar or unfamiliar. The series became an exercise in thinking about constructed representations and the identity of a place on the one hand, and the intermingling of value—cultural, economic, personal and representational—on the other.
