This company works with underground infrastructure. Once the work has been completed, everything becomes invisible.
Near Amsterdam Amstel Station, in the midst of a busy traffic hub, work was done on moving and replacing parts of the water network.

Unfamiliar territory is about living in a world where we are increasingly used to getting in touch with a final product. We are estranged from touching raw materials needed in the manufacture of a product.
My goal is to show in a series of images what kind of unknown environments produce these products and how much energy and manpower is needed for the production. As a spectator, one can become more aware by making the unknown acquaintance. This may make you more savvy, less reckless, less generalizing and can help you make more sustainable choices.
These images are just the beginning of a long journey to unknown workplaces. My thanks to all participating companies, which I was welcome to photograph, is very big. Thanks to them, I can introduce others to these unknown places and the work that takes place here.
