Dear Reader

This period of the year is special. Vincent van Gogh had a strong connection with nature and lived with the seasons. Karin Borghouts also experienced this in following his trail.

Vincent was here

Karin Borghouts visited all the places where Vincent van Gogh lived and worked and there were many. Zundert, London, the Borinage, Nuenen, Antwerp, Brussels, Paris, Arles, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Auvers-sur-Oise,.... She also reconstructed and photographed a large number of Vincent's still lifes with the right objects and in the right light. A beautiful book of photographs was published about this. Vincent was here, published by Gallery Ronny Van de Velde.

Vincent was here is a personal visual project on the boundary between photography and painting. The exhibition started in autumn 2019 in Het Noordbrabants Museum and is different and larger each time. Vincent was here can now be viewed at art gallery and auction house De Vuyst in Lokeren, Belgium.
