Photographer's Note

DE FUNDATIE ("the foundation") is Zwolle's landmark museum. The basis is a 19th century neo-classicist building, then in 2005 Hubert-Jan Henket added "the cloud" (de wolk) on top of it, a giant egg-shaped construction which houses two extra exhibition floors. It is decorated with 55,000 white-blue tiles.

Unlike some other landmark museums, this one actually has good exhibits too. The permanent collection is interesting enough, but the star exhibitions today are a roomful of Tahiti-inspired paintings by Jeroen Krabbe (suprise) and "Congo Tales, told by the people of Mbomo", a superb collection of pictures by Pieter Henket, who also happens to be the son of Hubert-Jan Henket, the architect of the cloud.
