Words and Photos by Maarten Rots.
Maarten: I thrive under restriction; I like it when things are closed off. By (temporarily) taking away many of the variables of everyday life I create room to focus and get a better understanding of what I do and why I do it. That’s why I have set up ‘Sitting’: a personal photography project that consists of a few simple rules:
- Photograph for one week within a one-mile radius only
- At the end of each day choose one photograph as the ‘pick of the day’
- Present the results in an exhibition right after this week of photographing
