Streets of the World
For the first time in history it is possible to visit all countries in the world in a free, transparent and
fast way. It's possible; therefore I want to see it. I want to find out what the world looks like in our time.
How far have we come, how much are we alike and how different are we. I want to meet people from
my time. To capture a small part, but a part indeed of their lives.
Today mankind as a species is more connected than ever. The very serious problems we face today
are global. Climate change and terrorism are not regional problems, but the shared problems of
a divided world.
Modern information networks such as television and the internet make the problems of someone on
the other side of the world our own, whether we like it or not.
This is why I think it is time for a project that shows the world as one world. By taking photos and
making films in the streets of the world, I hope to be able to make a comparison between those streets.
The combination of these streets will create a portrait of what our world looks like, what humanity
looks like at the beginning of the 21st century. All countries. Thus making visible what humanity is.
Who we are.
