The ruins of crisis as a breeding ground for progress

My series deals with the oppurtunities that a destructing collapse offers for innovative and creative ideas. My intention is to show that an end is simultaneously a new beginning and always succeeded by another sequence, whereby occasionally destruction is an inevitable need for development.

Therefore I photographed the construction work of a renaturalising project along the Maas in the north of Maastricht, where the course of the river is being transformed to be more organic and natural.

The so called "Grensmaas Project" is a part of the "Natuurbeleidsplan" by the dutch government that shall provide for 190.000 hectares of new nature by 2018 in order to counteract the crisis of decreasing biodiversity and vanishing nature in the Netherlands.
