News From Home - The Hague, The Netherlands
The five pieces were completed in The Hague in 2019. Each piece combines over 50 individual photographs and found imagery captured throughout this period. These images have been digitally recomposed to create scenes that illustrates the people, stories and places in The Hague.
An additional aspect of this project is a serie of five smaller designs presented as postcards. Our choice for the postcard form is important for this project, it helps our intention of favouring what is outside the tourist gaze. The cultural history of the postcard means that whatever is placed on its front is given a symbolic pedestal. This is a space usually reserved for the iconic. We hope that these new postcard forms change the narrative of the postcard, to offer insight into underrepresented but important people, stories and places. We hope these postcards can find their way elsewhere to help share an alternative view of The Hague.
