Speeltuin NDSM (2007) | Marc Faasse

2007 – 2014

Photographer Marc Faasse photographed the NDSM site from above for seven years. He did this with the angling camera, a camera mounted on a long stick. For seven years, Marc was regularly found with his significant tools at many events taking place on the NDSM. The photos he assembled into one photographic map of the area. With a scroll function, you can zoom in deep. With this, Playground NDSM is a unique time document that offers a surprising and revealing look at some unforgettable NDSM moments.

“Since 2007, I have taken pictures of NDSM terrain east. You’ll see it be crowded, other people, other lines. The site is currently changing rapidly: The crane has been moved and become a hotel, the slopes are being renovated and the skating rink is closed. I document with my project ‘Playground NDSM’ how we played the NDSM field in the last 7 years. I sketch my ideal image of the NDSM, namely the terrain as a playground for everyone. It will be a photomontage of different activities on one card that I want to show what an inspirational place is the NDSM. Let’s keep that! “Marc Faasse
