Second nature

Landscapes within the city of Apeldoorn.

Because Adriaan Holsappel grew up in the countryside and often photographed landscapes, has this kind of photography become his second nature. 

After Holsappel went to live in the center of the city of Apeldoorn, he felt his limitation to natural landscapes in his vicinity and started shooting in the city parks in the spring and summer of 2019. These parks are designed as “second nature” in the city and provide more biodiversity and a better living environment there.

Adriaan has photographed the landscapes in such a way that there is no street furniture, pavement or buildings. As if no human hand was involved.
