In november last year I made a photo of the sky over concert hall Bataclan in Paris for my ongoing project Collected Memory.
“Though never expressly negative in his outlook, Nieuwenhuize
has sought to reflect and interpret the crisis of identity brought
on by globalization.
It is fitting perhaps that the task has, in part, fallen to a native
of the Netherlands. After all, there is perhaps no other place in
the West where the anxie ties and possibilities of modernity are
more explicit than in this most cosmopolitan of countries.”
