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.

For the annual photography special in De Volkskrant I made a series on European border patrol. During my first shoot in Hongary, in june 2015 the Hungarian parlement decided to build the fence on the border. 3 months later the fence was a fact and Europe changes a little bit more in to a fortress.
If you are by chance in Mannheim and Ludwigshafen, between october and november please pay a visit to the foto festival. The festival is curated by Urs Stahel and is from exceptional quality, I think.
