Reportage | Om te houden – Jaap Scheeren

With its grandness, industrial buildings and rugged atmosphere, the NDSM-wharf is a remarkable part of the city. Commissioned by the Stichting NDSM-werf foundation, visual artist Jaap Scheeren wandered the site for a few months and captured its unpolished character in a collection of life-size landscape portraits. In his work he searches for the hidden narratives beneath the turbulent surface of the NDSM. The photo series is thus an ode to the shipyard as a place for the imagination.
