Boer Berend / Farmer Berend is a project in
which I spent two weeks at Berend's farm.
For me as a city person I wondered what life
in the countryside would be like. The result
was two weeks of being up from 6am to 12pm
experiencing the hard work of a farmers life.
The book shows images of this life, the texts
are reflections of my thoughts while working alongside him.
The photographs and the 4 short movies illustrate
the farm-life and its surroundings.
