Wout Berger Sanquin The production of Plasma Products Mirelle Thijsen's Choice of Company Photobooks Photography

Sanquin was established in 1998 through a merger between the Dutch blood banks and the Central Laboratory of the Netherlands Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service (CLB). The Foundation is responsible for blood supply on a not-for-profit basis and advances transfusion medicine as such that it fulfils the highest demands for quality, safety and efficiency. Sanquin delivers products and services, conducts scientific investigations and provides education, instruction, in-service training and refresher courses.

On the basis of the Blood Supply Act, Sanquin is the only organisation in the Netherlands authorised to manage our need for blood and blood products. It is also a not-for-profit organisation and thus has no profit motive. Sanquin employs approximately 3,000 workers all across the Netherlands.

The Sanquin organisation is constantly conducting research and developing new and improved blood products. There is also a constant search to replace the roughly 10% of the donors who become unavailable due to age, pregnancy, illness or relocation. At Sanquin, consistent quality and development through improvements therefore go hand in hand. 

Wout Berger (b.1941) in Ridderkerk, The Netherlands, he now resides and works in Utidam. Berger has exhibited extensively across the world in institutions such as; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; International Centre of Photography in New York; Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Tokyo and The Photographers’ Gallery in London. He has been in numerous gallery exhibitions in The Hague and his work is held in both public and private collections internationally.

Berger is particularly interested in severely contaminated sites that he photographs as if they were idyllic landscapes. In 2003 he produced a series entitled ‘Ruigoord’ which looked at an area in the Ruigoord village that had been prepared for building work using sand and seeds to hold the sand down. Berger using a technical camera produced close-up shots that have a painterly quality and highlight nature’s beauty but also its constant flux due to human intervention. Wout Berger's work is courtesy Gallery van Kranendonk, The Hague, Netherlands. See also
