Jara van den Bosch
heem is a young, green, creative space of reflection and contemplation, in the intersection of various religions and philosophies of life. as covid-19 brought activities to a halt, i discovered heem through the place, the gardens of the abbey of egmond, and the people surrounding and sustaining heem. the slow, intentional nature of analogue film motivated the choice for an analogue photobook – handbound at the abbey – to reflect my journey of getting to know heem.
inspired by people, new places and nature – especially the sun, i love to work on creative projects. besides my interest in the big questions of life, i am also fascinated for what happens beyond our words. this is where i love to tell (audio)visual stories with their colours, smells, sounds and the mundane thing of life – down to the smallest details.
