Marieken Verheyen: Elsewhere
by Marieken Verheyen
Publisher's Description
In this fascinating volume, Dutch photographer Marieken Verheyen takes an ordinary question – What can I see from the window of my house? – and turns it into a journey through the 21st- century issues of immigration, displacement, cultural contrasts and the concept of home. Photos of scenes taken from windows in the Netherlands contrast with views from windows in Bosnia, Ghana, Indonesia and Morocco (countries of origin for many Dutch immigrants), while insightful essays and in-depth interviews with native Dutch, immigrants from Africa, North Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia provide a thought-provoking counterpoint. A lively meditation on the interconnectedness of the contemporary world.
