The photos in this series by Wout Berger show a fascination for nature that is able to survive against all odds.
Berger made this series in 2003 around Ruigoord, an artists’ commune on the edge of Amsterdam. As Amsterdam grew, it would reclaim polluted land in the areas surrounding Ruigoord by covering it with sand. Berger was inspired by the cornflowers and dandelions that bloomed in this inhospitable environment.
