Vincent was here
After Karin Borghouts took photographs of the Van Gogh reproduction in her parents’ burned-out home, she became aware of her youthful memories of this painting and the influence it had had on her visual memory. Slowly a ball started rolling, and the photographer has since followed in Vincent van Gogh’s footsteps several times over the past fewyears. Zundert, de Borinage, Nuenen, Parijs, Arles, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Auvers sur Oise… she looked and photographed things today that the painter had looked at, drawn and painted around 130 years ago. Karin has also made reconstructions of Van Gogh’s still lifes and photographed them.
The photographs from the North Brabant period are now on display for the first time, along with the major exhibition ‘Van Gogh’s Inner Circle’ that is being held this autumn at Het Noordbrabants Museum in ’s Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands.
Karin Borghouts’ beautiful book of photographs, ‘Vincent was here’ is published by Ronny Van de Velde.
