During 9 years photographer Luca Solari has been busy working on a book and exhibition about the Dutch island Schiermonnikoog, part of the Wadden archipelago situated at the extreme northern tip of the Netherlands. Dutch award winning author Mathijs Deen, an expert of the Wadden region, wrote the literary texts that accompany Solari’s photographs.
Deen previously published the best seller ‘The Wadden, a History’ (‘De Wadden, een Geschiedenis’) that was nominated for the Jan Wolkers Award 2014 (annually honouring the best book on natural history). Eric Bos, acclaimed art critic of the Dagblad van het Noorden, wrote the Preface. ’The Fortress’ (size A4, 368 pages) has been edited in English, Dutch and French, was published independently and printed at EBS (Editoriale Bertolazzi Stei) in Verona (Italy), printer of photographic greats such as Brassaï, Sebastião Salgado, Helmut Newton etc.
