Land – Country Life in the Urban Age

Since the beginning of the 21st century, more than half of the world's population live in cities. What are the consequences of this shift for the countryside? Is it possible, against all economic logic, to accord new value to rural life?


On the basis of work by top photographers including Ad van Denderen, Martin Specht, Paul Seawright, Peter van Agtmael and Antonin Kratochvil,Warzone pauses to examine the experience of soldiers who have been dispatched to conflict areas in recent history.

Guided Tour by Harry Cock
Harry Cock

Portraits, industrial photography, architecture, still-lifes, landscapes, the ups and downs of everyday life: it is all to be found in the work of the Groningen photographer Harry Cock. His photographs are primarily done in the north of the country, and are shown in both regional and national venues. One of his central themes is how people seek to hang on in the face of changing circumstances. Equally striking is his nimble and humorous approach.
