A city can be approached from many different angles. Try focusing on different things.

Surrealism. We tend to not pay attention when we are walking in a city. Not really looking around, noticing what exists around us. What we need is a change of perspective. Experience differently, notice new things.

Individuality. Constantly being a part of a big crowd. But are we connected? Cities can make you feel alone in their crowds. Watching people, being watched, but still no contact.

Silence. In this ongoing chaos, if you search hard enough, you can find the neglected places. They are empty, silent and abandoned. Tiny spots of quiet, surrounded by noise.

Structure. Everything neatly ordered. Everything exactly the same. One thing repeated a hundred times. A city is actually full of structures. Repetition everywhere. One big puzzle.

Remarkable. Sometimes something captures your attention. Something that makes you look twice, gets you to walk back. Almost surreal. Strange. Remarkable.

These photographs were taken in the city of
's-Hertogenbosch located in the Netherlands.
