The closer to a building, the clearer the details.
But then you miss the contours. PANURBANA shows both.

I collect buildings. I do this by taking photos of a building from a certain perspective.
I glue these photos together like a collage so that a new building is created: a Panurbana.
At the moment I am collecting buildings in Amsterdam to make an atlas of them.

In Panurbana's panoramic photos, I explore time, space and different types of perspectives within the photo.

Every week a new collage of a building or construction that has been photographed somewhere in the world appears on social media (Facebook, instagram, flickr and youtube).

Panurbana 50 Joost van den Vondel

Joost van den Vondel (Cologne 1587 - Amsterdam 1679) is seen as the greatest Dutch writer and poet of the Dutch language.

He writes tragedies, doctrines, praise and denunciations. Well-known works are: Kinder-lyck, Gijsbrecht van Aemstel, Palamedes and Lucifer.

188 years after his death, Joost van den Vondel receives a statue and a park is named after him.

On Christmas 1982, as a protest, Joost van den Vondel was beheaded by squatters from Vondelstraat 36.

A year later, the restored statue is placed back in the park.
