Renze Dijkema photographed the famous Pieterpad during a 500 km walk straight through the Netherlands. His panoramic black and white photos show the Netherlands as an empty and abandoned area, made by man and in which man is present everywhere. The route begins in the far north, in the village of Pieterburen, continues via Groningen, Coevorden, Vorden and Venlo, and ends in Maastricht at the St. Pietersberg. The landscape changes constantly along the way, passing by clay fields and sandy soils, forests and rivers, but also parks and castle ruins.
This special book contains 72 panorama photos of the Pieterpad. In order to do them justice, the images have been printed over two pages, so that each photo is 60 cm wide and 24 cm high. As such, the landscapes encountered by Renze Dijkema can be best experienced.
