The Sky is The Limit




Everyone in the Netherlands knows his photos. They are published almost daily in one of the Netherlands’ major newspapers, De Volkskrant, or otherwise in one of the other leading papers. Joost van den Broek (1967) is a socially engaged photographer who does not shy away from difficult topics. He has already won a shopping list of prizes and with his new ‘project’ Tent City he is well on his way to the next one. Tent City, as the name implies, is a city made of tents in the Californian city of Ontario, where people who have lost their homes as a result of the credit crisis can stay until the economic tide turns. According to an American journalist, Tent City is not that much different from a refugee camp in Darfur.
