Desolate Amsterdam

Today, Amsterdam is busier than ever. Crowds of tourists from all over the world are strolling the streets of this bustling city. In 2015, photographer Maarten Delobel captured a rare moment of silence in the city. He chose to picture its most famous sights from Dam Square to Spui, along with its popular shopping streets. The series gives a melancholic and wistful feeling as if the city was abandoned: a desolate Amsterdam. As part of the exhibition in 2018 in de Hallen Maarten decided to photograph Kinkerstraat, where he lives now for many years.
