Karin Borghouts’ photo project ‘Vincent was here’ started in Zundert, where she photographed his godmothers’ house next to the Van Gogh family’s home. This house, with its ancient foundations and impressive roof beams is facing demolition, and was fully documented in photographs by Karin Borghouts in 2017.
Besides landscapes from Zundert, this exhibition will also include photos of the south and a handful of photographed still lives.
In a separate room, photographs created by Hans de Kort using the ‘collodion wet plate’ technique can be seen, also inspired by Vincent’s paintings.
The magnificent book of photographs Vincent was here, with 130 photographs by Karin Borghouts, published by Ronny Van de Velde, can be viewed in Zundert. The special edition with a print is also on sale there.
