The richness of photography is in fact all that, what it not contains, it is rather what we are connecting with it or project into it.

Grabstein auf Föhr

Artist in Residence

After three stays on invitation of the Museum Kunst der Westküste as “artist in residence” on the island of Föhr, Annet van der Voort was able to successfully complete her “Ship in Sight” project. It addresses the sepulchral culture of the Frisian captains’ graves along the Danish, German and Dutch North Sea coast. A catalogue-accompanying exhibition that combines photographic composings with written texts is planned.
