Patricia de Ruijter has been intensively photographing her own habitat, 'De Oeverlanden' in Amsterdam, since 2009. 'De Oeverlanden' is a green strip of land along the New Lake, sandwiched between motorway and Schiphol. This is where she zooms in on nature. She studies and photographs in a poetic way, and continues where words are not enough. Whoever sees it will understand: wild and edible plants co-exist with condoms, discarded plastic packaging, car lights and indefinable debris. From a distance no more than spots on a road, but from close up, the wild manifestations of today.
