De giraffe reisde in een rugzak
A chance sighting of a giraffe passing by gave this Wunderwall its title. It was created as part of my residency at Toos Neger Studio in Dordrecht and was exhibited at SBK Gallery where it soared to 6.5 metres high.
Roughly translating as the giraffe travelled in a backpack, this Wunderwall was constructed using images created while in the Netherlands at the Toos Neger Gastatelier in Dordrecht from November 2012 to February 2013.
Over three months, I photographed in Dordrecht, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Haarlem, Volendam, Den Haag and other small towns and villages in the Netherlands to discover the character of the country at that time.
