Bicycle Landscape: Why the Netherlands looks like this
Publisher: nai010 Publishers 2017 ISBN: 9789462083875 Format: Hardcover, 288pp , 340x240mm
Yorit Kluitman cycled through all 388 municipalities in the Netherlands, photographing the landscape between them in absence of people and buildings. This book presents his tour as a cross section of the ordered, strangely artificial Dutch landscape. Driven by a fascination for the organised, graphical structure of open space and the apparently two-dimensional world that encompasses the nation’s urban areas, Kluitman has deconstructed this landscape as part of a five-year study in collaboration with Vereniging Deltametropool. With contributions by various specialists such as landscape architect Adriaan Geuze to former Rijksmuseum director Wim Pijbes.
