A Portrait of EPAKO
The collaboration of a twenty year long ‘twinning’ between two municipalities (Drachten, The Netherlands and Gobabis, Namibia) came to an end. This photographic essay told the story of the people living in the slums of Epako in Gobabis and the bygone projects －all linked to the SDG's－ the two cities had worked on. The images portrayed here are a selection of the entirety of the project, which was exhibited in the town hall of Drachten, throughout Gobabis and in the form of a limited edition booklet.
Above: Two Newspaper articles from 'The Leeuwarder Courant' and 'Friesch Dagblad' about the exhibition and two images from one of the limited edition books that were printed about the twinning between Gobabis and Drachten (Smallingerland).
Below: Exhibition with bigger-than-Life sized photos (over 250 cm wide/8.2021 feet) that I shot in Gobabis, Namibia, covering 32 large panels in the Town Hall alone.
