As a student Eastern European Studies I found an old photobook in a second hand bookstore in Amsterdam. It was from German photographer Kurt Hielscher (1881-1948). In it were 192 stunning photos of 1926 Yugoslavia in copperdeepprint, which looks amazing almost like 3D shining like gold. It was quite expensive and therefore I decided to do something with it. What? That was obvious: try to rephotograph the photos in it. One thing led to another and now I have all Kurt Hielscher’s photobooks of several European countries such as Spain, Germany and Italy and the ambition to make them all. Due to COVID-19 the project came to a standstill. A trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina had to be cancelled last March, but I cannot wait to move on.
