Zeeland. Land in the sea. A region marked by man’s troublesome relationship with the elements. Where winds, waves, clouds and sunbeams change the character of this old, scarred island group in the blink of an eye.
Light, contrast and drama are abundant.
It’s a raw rugged old land, full of tales. Tales of dark ages and golden ages, rural life and industrialisation, high tides and low. And unfinished tales of Zeeland’s 650 kilometers of ever-changing coastline.
It’s that dynamic spectacle of the interplay of elements and eras that once drew artists like Mondriaan, moviemaker avant la lettre, to these parts.
If you want to shoot in Zeeland, – a province with 13 municipalities spread out over a number of islands, peninsulas and a strip bordering Belgium – you’ll have to comply with (local) rules and regulations.
