Reappear

In collaboration with Sylvana Lansu. Commissioned by Motel Mozaique and Groothandelsgebouw, Rotterdam


The series Reappear pays tribute to the architectural space of the Groot Handelsgebouw, a ‘symbol’ of reconstruction turning 65 this year. To celebrate the building’s anniversary, the photographers wandered through its labyrinth of hallways for 65 hours. Guided by the architecture and the colors of the original design, they let themselves be surprised by the many still unknown features of the building. In the visual play between the two photographers, a new dimension (re)appears – one which is not drawn on paper or built in concrete, but one which becomes tangible in a photograph.
