Jordi Huisman was born in Almere in the Netherlands in 1982. After receiving his BSC in Engineering, Design & Innovation, he attended the KABK Royal Academy of Art in The Hague to study photography. He’s been working as a freelance photographer since 2005, photographing for magazines, newspapers, design firms, architects and commercial agencies. Jordi also does documentary work, predominantly regarding the tension between man, nature and technology.
In the 1950’s and 60’s, an area that is now known as the province of Flevoland was reclaimed from the IJsselmeer. A large dyke surrounds this polder, which lies five meters below water level. The dyke forms an elevated outline, protecting the land from flooding.
This series portrays Flevoland and its essential outline. It shows how life, infrastructure and nature got implemented after this part of the former Zuiderzee was reclaimed and land was created.
