    A fire destroyes the childhood home of photographer Karin Borghouts. The event causes a shock and a wake of all kinds of worries and practical concerns. Despite feelings of chaos, destruction and irrevocability imposed by the charred interior after the event, Borghouts becomes fascinated by the beauty of the devastation left behind. Faced with these conflicting feelings Borghouts starts to capture the house carefully. Rarely a subject emerges so unexpectedly, so disturbing, yet so obvious to a photographer like this event. Her intuitive decision to take photos at that moment, under these circumstances, has led to an extraordinary and moving series of images. The poignant but at the same time beautiful images are brought together in The House, an exhibition with beautiful black colourprints on mat PhotoRagpaper.
