After careful consideration Robin and I decided to make a new cover for the book Ville de Calais. This will most probably be the final one, but… we will  know for sure when we start printing in February. The book will be released on 2th April


I can give you a preview of the new book i’m making with graphic designer Robin Uleman. The book will be published at the end of February 2016. I will start a crowdfunding in a view day. On this site you can pre order the book.

Documentair fotograaf Henk Wildschut heeft naast het werk in opdracht voor kranten en tijdschriften, ook langlopende documentaire projecten geïnitieerd. Ontheemding, isolement en kwetsbaarheid zijn de terugkerende thema’s in Wildschuts werk. Voor de serie Shelter fotografeerde hij vanaf 2005 de provisorische onderkomens van vluchtelingen aan de randen van Fort Europa, zoals het onlangs ontruimde vluchtelingenkamp in de Franse havenstad Calais. De foto’s over de shelters in Europa zijn vanaf deze week te zien in Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam. Pieter van der Wielen spreekt met Henk Wildschut.
