Borneokade, Amsterdam 1988

During my first visit to The Netherlands I became fascinated by the desolate Eastern Harbor area of Amsterdam. Once a busy industrial port, by the 1980’s it was inhabited mostly by squatters, artists and boat people. For many it was considered a ‘no go area’ at the edge of the city. In the 1990’s urban development started and the area was transformed into a new residential area.

Amsterdam City Archives purchased my work in 1990.
