Overview participating exhibitions
Last year the photographer Marrigje de Maar made two long journeys on foot: along the 800-year- old, 1400 kilometer pilgrim's route on the Japanese island of Shikoku, and through the thousands of years of history in the Aboriginal regions in the Australian outback. She didn't feel alone for a moment on either of these solitary treks – in some peculiar manner she felt herself linked with the people who had followed these paths before her. In her thoughts they often walked a ways with her, while whispering their stories to her. With her two pinhole cameras – one with colour film, the other with black and white – she recorded these imaginary encounters.
