THE NETHERLANDS – OFF THE SHELF
Photographer Hans van der Meer depicts the Netherlands of today - opening January 21
A great deal has been built in the Netherlands in recent decades, particularly outside the major cities. In places like Heerhugowaard, Hellevoetsluis or Hoofddorp the population has in some cases increased tenfold. As a result, the country's appearance has changed dramatically; urban culture has slowly but surely been pushed into the country. Nowadays, a ciabatta with mozzarella and sundried tomatoes can be ordered just as easily in a small town like Nijverdal as in Utrecht.
