Poisoned Landscape Revisited - Wout Berger
In 1992 photographer Wout Berger published Giflandschap (Poisoned Landscape) to wide acclaim. The book contained photographs of badly polluted locations in the Netherlands. Twenty-five years later he retraced his footsteps, returning once again to capture the same locations with his camera. Complementing Berger’s intriguing photographs of the fifty locations are introductions by Frits Giersberg, curator of the Fotomuseum in Rotterdam, and Hans Aarsman, photographer and picture editor at De Volkskrant newspaper. Soil scientists Theo Edelman and Willem Hendriks provide a lucid yet impressive account of over 40 years of soil remediation in the Netherlands.
