Jurre Rompa - Keepers
‘Keepers’ by photographer Jurre Rompa cinematically captures the world of beekeepers in Amsterdam. The hive boxes are often situated in places where unsuspecting passers-by would never imagine a colony of bees: on roofs, in the gardens of canal houses, at schools, in parks and forests, and even on a work of art. The fact that very few people in the city know of the existence of these hives offered Rompa an interesting opportunity to delve further into the subject. By photographing the beekeeper from a distance, with the city as a backdrop, he brings this mysterious phenomenon to light. Rompa is a portrait and documentary photographer based in Amsterdam.
