Photographer Dana Lixenberg traveled throughout the Netherlands to capture the everyday activities of Dutch mayors in a variety of cities, from Amsterdam to Zeewolde, illuminating the meticulous administration of the Dutch state and uncovering the mayoral role as a critical link between citizens and government. With portraits of each mayor, as well as their workspaces, short biographical interviews and municipal statistics, the book provides an intimate encounter with these otherwise ordinary people, as well as their views on the responsibilities of public service.
