Dutch landscape photographer Jan Koster first became known for his innovative river landscapes, for which he turned the camera 120 degrees around one point and created stunning panoramic scenes. For the new work featured in ”Dutchscapes,” Koster abandoned the panoramic format, systematically covering the Dutch coastline in single mammoth images, documenting the dunes, sea, and dikes. The end result of this lengthy foray along the Dutch coast is an overwhelmingly serene and visually spacious series of photographs. As quoted by art historian, Merel Bem, Koster’s monumental photographs should be viewed not only in photographic terms but also as an extension of the Dutch landscape painting tradition.
