In honor of the 750th anniversary of the Norbertinessen sisters of the priory Sint-Catharinadal, the well-known Dutch photographer Koos Breukel portrayed the sisters in the summer of 2021. The photos pay tribute to one of the oldest religious communities in our country. The Norbertinessen monastery Sint-Catharinadal was founded in Wouw, but soon moved to Breda due to flooding in West Brabant. The sisters have lived in Oosterhout since 1647.

Koos Breukel (The Hague, 1962) is one of the Netherlands’ best-known portrait photographers. Breukel: “I always try to work with someone completely blank. […] My photos are actually made out of curiosity about a person. That’s in those photos. A photo explains nothing, but actually keeps the mystery alive.”

In the publication, a wide selection of Breukel’s photos is accompanied by texts and interviews by Femke Deen.
