Saddle-Stitch, Digital, limited Edition of 100 - Chronicles #005
The Maasvlakte was created in the 1960s by reclaiming land from the North Sea through dykes and sand suppletion. The sand for the suppletion was largely taken from the North Sea and the Oostvoorne Lake which was created by the construction of the Maasvlakte. Fossils were (and can still be) found in the sand. Before the completion of the Maasvlakte it was a sandbank which was quite hazardous to shipping. In September 2008 work has started on the Maasvlakte 2: the existing area was expanded and the new harbours opened for commercial use in 2013. By spraying sand in the North Sea the port of Rotterdam will be extended by some 2.000 hectares.
Chronicles are a new series of pocket sized photography zines. Each zine is a platform for a photographer to show work that is based on a particular theme.“
