THE URBAN ONES V1
Two worlds come together in the new work “The Urban Ones”. Martijn Walet and Micky Hoogendijk, each active in a different corner of the art world, worked on a new project in Italy this spring.
“I am increasingly looking for collaboration in projects when it comes to my photography. Still looking for the theme of Strength & Vulnerability, it inspires me not to be alone on set all the time. This was an excellent opportunity to see what The Ones radiate in photo work.”
This location is a special location, a sacred location. An old church built in 1277 on the foundations of an even older monastery. The foundations are still there to this day. This abandoned church is located near the holy and healing water that flows from the Alps. History tells the story of a farmer that let his sick lamb swim in the water after which she rose again as reborn in 1295.
Over the past hundreds of years, the church has been visited by various royal families for them to be baptized.
The church has been abandoned for over 50 years and is in a serious state of decay
The work can be seen in the gallery in Hoogeloon throughout the summer.
