Bildtstars and Eigenheimers

54.3 km

In 2018 the photo project ‘Bildtstars and Eigenheimers’ kicked off with ten giant portraits of local potato farmers along the Wadden Sea coast of Northeast Friesland. You will find the portraits – by photographer Linette Raven –  on farm roofs, walls and barns in the middle of the landscape for at least five years. Installed on their own farms, the potato farmers and their families become visible. What story do they want to tell about the land they are working on? About their culture and their lives? Discover it on location – surrounded by all elements and at your own pace – guided by the ‘Bildtstars and Eigenheimers’ experience route: an expedition through a unique area.

Portraits
The experience route ‘Bildtstars and Eigenheimers’ can be downloaded through the free app ‘Routes Friesland Style‘. It’s also available at routes.nl. The route guides you along ten monumental photo installations that change your perspective on the landscape. From afar the portrayed potato farmers gaze over the fields. What moves these hard workers? Listen to the audio files in the app to learn more about their passion for the land, farm life and the potato. Information signs at all farms welcome you on their yard. The route starts in Hallum and ends in Anjum. By bike it takes about two hours, but you can also visit and admire the photo installations by car of course.

The beautiful stories about the farmers are written bij Ellen Schat.
