My award-winning project PLAYGROUND portrays Dutch training grounds where the Fire Department, the Police and the Military are trained in realistic scenarios.
In surrealistic ghost towns the emergency services try to prepare for what is factually unknowable: the future. Within the boundaries of this 'playground' the
chaos seems controllable for a moment; even if only for the duration of the exercise. I have now compiled these pictures, taken the the last few years from atop a cherry picker, into a book.
