In the holland series Erik Hijweege miniaturizes the dutch landscape as the Netherlands are but a small dot on the globe it felt like the proper way to portray it. Using a large format camera and choosing a small depth of field the subject gets its toy size quality. The series shows a wide variety from typical dutch scenes (canals in Amsterdam) to more modern subjects as the offices at the ‘Zuidas’ in Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport
Holland movie by Erik Hijweege. This movie is part of the Holland exhibition and Holland book.
