Floriade Haarlemmermeer

In opdracht / On assignment, 2001-02

(18 foto’s in portfolio)

Met als thema ‘Feel the art of nature’ werd in 200 en 2002 de internationale tuinbouwtentoonstelling Floriade opgebouwd in het Haarlemmermeerse Bos waar op de voormalige (binnen)zeebodem een drietal thematische landschappen werden aangelegd. Ik fotografeerde de opbouw van deze grootse tentoonstelling. Na openstelling richtte ik me op de bezoekers die zich op de Floriade ontspanden in het soort landschap als waar we op onze reis naar de Haarlemmermeer met trein of auto doorheenreden.

With the theme “Feel the art of nature”, the international Floriade horticultural exhibition was erected in 2001 and 2002 in Haarlemmermeerse Bos: three artificial landscapes were laid out on the former (inland) seabed. I photographed the layout of this grand exhibition. After opening, I focused on the visitors who enjoyed the kind of landscape that we traveled through by train or car on our journey to the exhibition.

        Archival Prints
We use only the highest quality acid-free fibre based paper, and the best stable, pigment based inks. Our paper has a fine, smooth surface and is ideal for printing color photographs with impressive pictorial depth.
Life expectancy of the prints is up to 200 years, or even more.   More information on our prints page.

Our mounted fine art prints are framed with a classic and elegant solid wood profile, available in either black oak, light oak or white maple. All frames include Schott Mirogard® museum quality glass. This is an anti-reflection, completely transparent glass that UV protects the print and minimises reflection. The frames come with integral hanging systems so that they are ready to hang once received.   Please visit our framed prints page.
