Watch the Weather Change
Marco van Duyvendijk
17.5 x 22 cm
An unexpected encounter on the internet with someone on the other side of the world. The concentration of a puppet maker in his workshop. The poems Jo Landheer wrote in the nineteen twenties. These are just some of the elements that photographer Marco van Duyvendijk brings together in the new photo book of his own design, Watch the Weather Change.
This books presents us with a series of photographs with almost cinematographic characteristics. The city images, which were mainly photographed in the metropolis of Hong Kong, are combined with landscapes, still lifes and portraits. In his work, Marco van Duyvendijk is increasingly on the lookout for a form of visual poetry – a search for the gray area between documentary photography and storytelling.
