Countryside squatters

They dwell in wagons, old farmhouses, bunkers or an old outside swimming resort. Primitive, but self-sufficient: solar power, own water purification and growing their own vegetables. ‘If squatting really will be prohibited, we’ll be called criminals.’The photoreportage was made together with writer Judy Zweijtzer. It is published in the winter-edition of the magazine Vrij Nederland Nr 52/01 (27 Dec 2008-7 Jan 2009).
