A photography book, a website and a traveling exhibition. Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890) moved from place to place from quite early on in his life, never staying in one spot for very long. In the Borinage he decided to devote himself to art, and made some 900 paintings and 1,100 works on paper during his career. He also left 902 letters for posterity. The Belgian photographer Karin Borghouts followed in Vincent’s footsteps, from his Dutch birthplace in Zundert to Auvers-sur-Oise in France where he took his own life. No less than thirteen locations, including Nuenen, Drenthe, Paris, Arles and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence are portrayed in magnificent images. She has also reconstructed a number of his still lifes and photographed them. Come and enjoy the wondrous places and themes that were Vincent’s, and view them afresh through Karin Borghouts’ lens. https://vincentwashere.com https://karinborghouts.be Photography Book VINCENT WAS HERE 208 pages 130 colour photographs of Karin Borghouts Text by Xavier Canonne, Director Musée de la Photographie Charleroi, Belgium and Ron Dirven, Director-curator Vincent van Goghhuis, Zundert in the Netherlands Dutch, French and...
