Photographer's Note

Volendam, an old fishing village on the IJsselmeer, offers traditional costumes, sporting events, music and of course fish. The village is dotted with many small houses, grouped around the harbor. The first thing to do in Volendam is a revolution in the streets, to enjoy the atmosphere and lively. You can walk along the coast, between the churches and through the old center. And then enjoy the traditional Dutch costumes that are still used for folk events. You can also go in search of the famous "Palingsound", a musical genre that draws typical of Volendam in the name - literally "eel sound" - a local specialty. Some of the most famous singers and Dutch musicians were born in this fishing village.
