By Jeroen Hofman

Impressive tribute to the Dutch Wadden Islands by photographer Jeroen Hofman.
“With the ferry across the open water, the transfer from A to B feels big. When you stand by the railing on the outer deck, the mainland disappears behind you and the island slowly looms in front of you, something curious happens. A peace came over me that I had never felt before. A new world lay at my feet.”
— Photographer Jeroen Hofman spent years working in all weathers on this magnum opus, capturing the Dutch islands in monumental images like a contemporary painter. All photos were taken from an aerial platform, which allowed him to capture the landscape and horizon in a very special way. An island has a mythical appeal to man and the imagination. This book celebrates and depicts the longing for an island as a place of peace, nature and seclusion.
