Between January 2018 and February 2019, I travelled across The Netherlands looking at the landscape from inside Dutch mosques. I found myself in the polders and the cities, the suburbs and the country sides bringing together two spaces that seem to be opposed.
I wanted to suggest a different representation of ‘Islam in the West.’ And so, I decided to invite the viewer to look at his or her own landscape—from a different point of view.
Although these images are composites and may appear to be surreal, they are in fact actual documentations of Dutch mosques within their local Dutch surroundings.
‘New Dutch Views’ is a series of 30 photographs, a book with accompanying texts and an installation of large-scale photographs.
