HOME Art Project


Currently 1.8 million inhabitants of non-Dutch origin live in the Netherlands. Together they represent two hundred nationalities, of which 142 nationalities live in Amstelveen alone. ‘HOME Art Project’ is an art project in which I connected different inhabitants, nationalities and backgrounds through a universal theme such as HOME. The current developments put an extra emphasis on the importance of being and feeling at home.

I asked the people I photographed if they can think deeply about the topic HOME while taking the picture, because I wanted to take a photo in which the thoughts and feelings of the person become visible. Do people adopt a certain posture when they think about their home? Can one see in their pose in which mood or state of mind someone is? These are questions I am looking to answer, I wanted to make these emotions visible. The viewer sees the photographed person from behind, so he looks into the picture with the person, but he also sees the person’s posture. Exhibition was at  COBRA Museum Amstelveen. March & May, 2023
