The work of Dutch photographer Raimond Wouda (1964)
explores human relationships in their various forms as well as how
the individual relates to his surroundings. To do so, Wouda seeks
out small communities within society: social groups whose members
adhere to certain codes of behaviour and values. He is particularly
interested in the boundary between public and private life, which
is becoming increasingly less defined. Wouda uses this tension to
create a monumental intimacy that imbues the ordinary with
In the series, On Scale, Wouda zooms in on man
and his environment. He reveals how tourists affect the landscape
in 'topographical' images of holiday destinations. Foam Editions
offers five images from this series: Campione, Col du
Galibier, Ronda, Marbella and Venetië.
Foam Editions carries a selection from A'DAM DOCk, a
series that was commissioned by the Amsterdam Municipal Archives
(Gemeentearchief). Together with Henk Wildschut, Wouda was asked to
make a photographic record of Amsterdam's harbour district. Wouda
and Wildschut followed the route of the North Sea Canal from the
seaside town of Wijk aan Zee all the way to Amsterdam's western
dockyards. The entire series is kept in the Amsterdam Municipal
Archives, and a book of the photographs has been published. Foam
Editions features three works from this series: Strand Wijk
aan Zee, Yeoman Bridge and Amfert I.
Both series (all eight works) are available in an edition of ten.
The prints are available at Foam Editions from € 955,-.
