Marie-José Jongerius: Lunar Landscapes – Maasvlakte 2


Photographs of Maasvlakte 2 by Marie-José Jongerius

November 3, 2012 — January 13, 2013

In Lunar Landscapes: Maasvlakte 2 photographer Marie-José Jongerius documents the Port of Rotterdam’s expansion project in an intriguing way.

The Port of Rotterdam is the largest in Europe, and after Shanghai and Singapore, the largest in the world. With 2,000 hectares of new land to be reclaimed from the sea, the construction of Maasvlakte 2 is one of the largest infrastructure projects in recent years. Through Jongerius’s eyes, however, it is above all an alien landscape and a world of amazement and expectation.
