Artist's Description

As a result from the increasing sea-level Schokland transformed from an attractive settlement area in the Middle Ages to a place under continuous threat by floods in the 19th century. By that time the Schoklanders had retreated to the three most elevated parts, Emmeloord, Molenbuurt, and Middelbuurt. A major flood in 1825 brought massive destruction, and in 1859 the government decided to end permanent settlement on Schokland. The former municipality of Schokland was joined to Kampen on the mainland. Not easy to fit in..many incidents took place..they were not really accepted in the beginning…and didn’t want to fit in the landsmen community.
Schokland lost its status as an island when the Noordoostpolder was reclaimed from the sea in 1942.
Generations of Schoklanders still live in Kampen now mostly in the Brunnepe quarters.

Equipment: Eyes, hands, mind, soul, Konica Minolta Dimage Z1 camera
