The traveler / المسافر

In March 1932, two Dutch photographers got into their Model A Ford to drive the 9,000 km trip east from Maastricht to Herat, Afghanistan. Their photographs and films captured a unique perspective of life during the 1930s in Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Persia; modern-day Iran. Our project is a tribute to Alphons and his outward looking lens, that carried with it the charming mystery and fantasy of the world, back to Maastricht.
