Vincent van Gogh (1853 — 1890) moved from place to place from quite early on in his life, never staying in one spot for very long. The photographer Karin Borghouts followed in Vincent’s footsteps, from his Dutch birthplace in Zundert to Auvers-sur-Oise in France where he took his own life. She has also reconstructed more of 30 of his still lifes and photographed them.
