"Over the past year, I had the privilege to photograph the transition of an old warehouse into a hi-tech plant research laboratory for the company Plantlab.
Based on the results, I was given complete freedom to compose a photographic book together with designer Robin Uleman. My first book of business-related photography.
At first glance, the book seems only to be about the refurbishment of an old building. Old junk is cleared away to enable the demolition of existing structures, after which new construction can take place using new ideas and materials.
My concept is that this refurbishment is a metaphor for what Plantlab wants to achieve. A change in agriculture. As they say themselves, they are on a mission to feed the world in a more sustainable manner by enabling plants to be grown in hi-tech, enclosed spaces that can be stacked vertically: in other words, ‘vertical farming’."
