FOARBY NIJ ALTOENAE (THE ELSEWHERE WORLD). <Previous Next>

Foarby Nij Altoenae | Rob Severein | Book design | 2019

The first design of my book about a unique region in the Netherlands. The land 'beyond Nij Altoenae’.

In 'Foarby Nij Altoenae' I take you to a country beyond the end of the inhabited world. To discover a tough area. Empty and deserted. Unruly. And with infinite distances. Where silence reigns. A land that refuses to please.

And yet, there are still a few people living there ...

'Foarby Nij Altoenae' combines landscapes, portraits and still lifes into a series of photographs about headstrong people and their connection with this land. And into a book that reflects the character of the area in everything.

The book will be published in 2020.

Stephane Mallarme said that everything in the world exists in order to end up in a book. Today everything exists to end in a photograph.
