Description

The Netherlands - Off The Shelf  by photographer Hans van der Meer is a project about typically Dutch small towns such as: Lisse, Raalte, Drunen, Boskoop and Nieuw Vennep. Not big cities, not villages either. When we cross a border we enter a space where everything is done differently. We immediately recognise: this is a foreign country! Returning to the Netherlands, we also know in an instant when we are on homeland again. Wherever you go, the unique character of a country shows itself more clearly in small towns than in the big cities. In small towns France is more French, England is more English and Germany is more German.
