The bareness of ground and trees is a promise of blossom and the good life.

This series shows diverse nurseries and orchards in The Netherlands. Riemen’s images, which are captured during the winter and springtime of 2015-2017, explore the remarkable horticultural use of the land. The photographer is fascinated by the strikingly artificial layout of the plots which has been formed by commercial and other practical objectives. In many images we see straight lines of trees with the bareness of the ground and branches as evocative elements. In wintertime when there isn’t much work to be done and most birds are quiet, often an invigorating tranquility hangs in the air. Thieu Riemen greatly enjoys this time of year, when wandering about the abandoned orchards and nurseries, is a great way of being in the world. Despite the calm desolation of the plots of land, the photographs are in some way full of the promise of blossom, promise of fruit, promise of growth, full of the promise of the good life.



Thieu Riemen (b. 1958) is a fine-art photographer and teacher who lives in Tilburg in the south of The Netherlands. Originally he was educated as a painter at Academie voor Beeldende Vorming Tilburg (Academy of Visual Arts) and art historian at Leiden University. Photography was continuously a part of his visual artwork and profession. About eight years ago, the rise of digital photography gavea fresh new boost to his landscape photography.
