Kitchen Portraits Amsterdam
Let’s see the voyeuristic attitude of the photographer Erik Klein Wolterink who has focused his last project,on commission by the City Archives and the The Amsterdam Fund, on the innards of the kitchens.
He opened cupboards, drawers, fridges and ovens, making them show us their inner secrets. Each piece he photographed separately and reconstructed the images again to one unit. Like him, we zoom in on what the cupboards have collected over months or even decades. From instant mashed potatoes to truffle oil, from Maggi cubes to Ethiopian spice mixes. This is the raw material with which we must try to imagine who belongs to these kitchens.
The book Kitchen Portraits is for sale in the City Bookshop.
