For this photo series, photographer Loek van Vliet selected a specific type of landscape, “quiet areas”. A relatively new phenomenon in this densely populated and highly industrialised region of Europe, these demarcated outdoor spaces enjoy governmentally instituted noise restrictions, thereby allowing the natural sounds of flora and fauna to predominate.
They signal a shift in attitude towards our surroundings, and affirm humanity’s growing desire to temper, if not bring an end to the supremacy it has established over nature. Not only does Van Vliet succeed in capturing the solemn magnificence and beauty of the Low Countries, he also builds upon this desire to reconnect.
