Testimonials

"From old to new, to new to old? After a massive reconstruction following World War II, the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands, is now known for its clean and modern architecture. But photographer Maarten Vromans believes there’s imperfection in even the most seemingly perfect things, and has taken his camera to the streets of the city to explore its "urban erosion." From slightly dented metal to upheaved pavement, Vromans has shown us that no matter where we live, if we look hard enough, we too can find beauty and art in the hidden corners of our streets."
