First edition of Aarsman’s first book, modest landscapes taken from the roof of his camper-van on a trip through the Netherlands. A significant player in the New Topography movement, Aarsman is also a novelist and playwright, and the narrative impulse to his photography is evident here. ‘The photos are supplemented by melancholic and yet witty diary entries about his personal life and about whether the Netherlands is really worth photographing’ (Dutch Eyes, p. 449).
