Janine Schrijver - Our Nature: Within The Limits Of City Parks
With this intricately folded and bound volume, Janine Schrijver presents her sizable international photographic investigation into city parks. Over the past five years, she has photographed the various facets of many urban parks – from users, vegetation and flowers, and park features, to leisure activities and functions, and even detrimental aspects such as littering and vandalism. Located in popular parks in Rotterdam, The Hague, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, London, Berlin, Antwerp, Barcelona, Vienna, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai, and New York, it approaches the subject from a familiar perspective, yet also asks for a deeper consideration of why we take such green areas for granted.
