Pier To Pier

200 years ago, the first bathing houses were placed on the beach. They marked the start of the modern Scheveningen sea-bathing culture. However, all those years ago, Scheveningen was mainly a poor fishing village. ‘Van der Zwan’ is a well-known family name in Scheveningen. Here, my grandfather had a fish shop and my father grew up here. The stories I heard from them sketched a completely different picture of the beach and the sea, which was full of dangers. Also, the brother of my father drowned near the fishing Pier at the age of 12, just after the war.It was this contradiction that made me decide to delve deeper with his camera into the contemporary Scheveningen. I kept coming back to the beach, the boulevard and the pier to visualize the local bathing and beach culture. ‘Pier to Pier’ is about the 2,5 kilometers of beach and boulevard between the northern fishing pier and the pleasure pier of Scheveningen.I tried to capture the almost inexhaustible flow of day trippers in a very idiosyncratic and striking way. With the use of colour and flash and a sense of humor.
