Geeren-Zuid Traces Of Silence, photobook of demolished social housing in Breda-Noord (stills)
Sporen van de Stilte, een portret van de (sloop)woningen in Geeren-Zuid, Breda. Fotoboekje in opdracht van Singelveste Alleewonen, zomer 2009. Singelveste Alleewonen corp. in Breda asked me to do a series of the demolition of over 100 of their houses in Geeren-Zuid in Breda this summer, I didn't had to think twice. I visit abandoned places often with my camera, capture "Traces of Silence" in fine art photography & books. There were no restrictions, this way I was able to shoot more than just the tearing down of the houses like an ordinary photo journalist. I tried to capture the spirit of the people who once lived here. It's social housing, the houses aren't big and often very similar in lay out. By this book I hope their soul will be kept alive forever.
