portrait 03
marjolein landman

Wandering through urban landscapes, from New York to Tokyo, from Hong Kong to Tilburg, Marjolein Landman searches for the beauty of decay and destruction. Bright colours, the sparkles that reflect or the darkness of oil and tar residues. Moreover, she is fascinated by the dynamic spaces between the buildings that rise, where human life manifests itself in many ways.

“enchanted by the metropolis”
