In 1968, photographer Rob Severein’s grandparents rented a cottage on the Nieuwe Bildtdijk, just a few hundred metres from the Wadden Sea in north-west Friesland, the Netherlands. They would go on living there for 30 years, and their young grandson would often journey from Amsterdam to visit them. They have since passed away, but over the past few years Severein travelled numerous times to this landscape, known as the Bildt. Summers there are really wonderful, yet it transforms into a grim country in winter, with merciless winds and picturesque roads that become muddy paths. This photo series is Severein’s homage to its emptiness and the feeling of being totally alone.
