‘Volkstuinen’ is my largest uncommissioned project so far. I made this portrait series during an entire gardening season. It shows the gardeners in their own ‘volkstuin’ (allotment).
I’ve used the same point of view in every photo. This brings out interesting differences, not only between the gardeners themselves, but also from the garden and the different stages of the plot of land as well.
The series is entirely made with my analogue medium format camera Zenza Bronica and Fujifilm Sensia film. Besides scanning, the photos are not edited in any way to give them the needed authenticity.
