So glad to see my work published in 18 pages in the Dutch edition of National Geographic Magazine. In this project I documented the repopulation of abandoned villages in rural Spain and investigated how people try to create ‘utopian’ mini-societies in search for a sustainable future. I have been working on the project for the past 1,5 year during the pandemic with the support of National Geographic Society and Matchingsfonds de Coöperatie

Van exodus naar ecoparadijs
Het Spaanse platteland liep decennialang leeg. Nu vestigen zich er nieuwe, idealistische gemeenschappen.
