Jeroen Hofman // Playground

The award-winning project PLAYGROUND of photographer Jeroen Hofman portrays Dutch training grounds where the Fire Department, the Police and the Military are trained in realistic scenarios. In surreal ghost towns the emergency services try to prepare for what is factually unknowable: the future. Within the boundaries of this ‘playground’ the chaos seems controllable for a moment; even if only for the duration of the exercise. Hofman has now compiled these pictures taken the last few years from atop a cherry picker into a book.
