THE HOLE IN THE HORIZON

Argentina is in a sense the most distant country of Europe. It perhaps lies in South America, but in terms of disposition it shows great similarities with Western Europe. Guus Rijven observed this when he travelled in that South American country for three months. He wore three hats on this trip - first as a photographer, whose job it was to shoot attractive and informative pictures; second as an artist, who freely interpreted the events under way and on the horizon in black and white, square, middle format; and finally as a writer/journalist Rijven used the subjects of the observer/photographer as the basis for formulating texts, in the manner of the interpreting artist. Three-in-one, they got behind the facade of Argentina. The visions were collected in the book HET GAT IN DE HORIZON (The hole in the horizon, 2002), from which the selection shown comes.
