STEK1 and STEK 2 are two short photo albums that I made in 1999 and 2000 with Alexandra Rouppe van der Voort (

We immersed ourselves in the nature of nature, a plant, a tree. In STEK1 we are born as a plant, in STEK2 the plants have fallen ill and are healed with human help.

This is a reference to the human duty to open one’s eyes to the inevitable need for an active collaboration to stop the disastrous extinction of eco-systems.
