This triptych is commissioned by the Utrecht municipality and a response to the constant motion in and around the station area that is under renovation for a decade now.
To escape the overwhelming amount of sounds, images and changes I took photographs in sanctuaries. According to the signs that mark these quiet areas in the Dutch landscape these are some of the very rare places in the Netherlands where you can still experience “silence”. Sanctuary is made for the opening of the brand new station square and will be on view for one year along the work of four other photographers.
