Aside from being a vast nature and recreation area, Meijendel, situated near The Hague, is a water catchment area for the city. To enhance the natural character and the biodiversity of the terrain, the top layer of soil has been removed in the more remote parts of this area, comprising woods, dunes, and small lakes. This has resulted in the return of the wandering dunes of yesteryear, which Theo Bos believes only makes the landscape more attractive. Critics, however, say that Meijendel is now not only an area for the production of drinking water but also for artificial nature.

EVERYTHING'S GOING WELL, HERE

What strikes Theo Bos about the urban milieu is the manner in which people must constantly be adapting to the continual stream of changes. Today the city is often defined as a "mental space," as first and foremost a image that we carry around in our heads. But at the same time that city is, of course, also a reality. It is a place in which we move around physically and literally take our place. On the street that produces brief, unexpected moments, which in photographs take on an almost theatrical character.
