I went looing for a ship-book cover1

'I went looking for a ship' is a navigation through the landscape of shipping, following the major renovation of the sea lock in IJmuiden, the most important access to the port of Amsterdam. Natascha Libbert documents the life inside the technical zone on and around the locks, the port of Amsterdam, and the ships. She focused on themes such as destruction and construction, the increasing public invisibility of maritime transport, and the way in which the landscape is constantly changing as a result of shipping. She decided to look for a ship to be able to observe everything from another perspective and to get a grip on this landscape in transformation.'
