Loes van Duijvendijk Photography


In collaboration with Sylvana Lansu

Emerge is a project initiated by photographers Loes van Duijvendijk and Sylvana Lansu. In need for new ways of looking at the city, they rediscover the rhythm of Rotterdam. Over the span of one year, they explored it’s geometric jungle. Colors and shapes turn into a visual language, nature and concrete become one. Silhouettes define the character of the city and alters the architecture of its original context. In the visual play between the two photographers, they question the common imagery of the metropolis. With Emerge they present a new way of looking at the spatial identity of Rotterdam.
