Gitta van Buuren

APPROPRIATING CAMP HOLLAND (2009)

Since 2003 the Dutch photographer Gitta van Buuren has visited Afghanistan several times – unembedded. In 2009 she stayed in Camp Holland, the base of the Dutch troops in the province of Uruzgan, while she was giving a course in photography in nearby Tarin Kowt for the Afghan staff of Dutch aid organisations and their local partners. While she was there Van Buuren photographed the sitting areas and street signs with which soldiers tried to domesticate their strange – and estranging – surroundings at the base.
