Below Sea Level Book



In Below Sea Level, photographer Ewout Huibers captures the Netherlands in every season and includes some remarkable highlights and places well below sea level.

Back in 2012 MENDO teamed up with Dutch photographer Ewout Huibers for the book Amsterdam, A Metropolitan Village. That worked so well, that Mendo decided to do another book together: Below Sea Level, The Netherlands in Photographs. This photographic journey takes the reader through a country where water is both a friend and an enemy at the same time. Almost one quarter of the country’s surface is made up of drained inland lakes and land reclaimed from the sea. In such a densely populated country, every piece of land is cherished.

In Ewout Huibers’ stunning photographs, the ever-present water plays a natural leading role. Below Sea Level is a painstaking visual study of the land that the down-to-earth and industrious Dutch people have worked hard to create. And their work will never end.
