Alan Beukers


This album of over 200 century-old postcards takes the reader on a magical journey across the world in five travelogues, depicting the Orient, the Arab lands, Africa, the Americas and Oceania. These haunting postcards and the people they depict strike us with a special force today, vividly expressing a deep-seated connection with the land and customs that gave them their identities. The stories implicit in their eyes, their costumes and their postures act as a telling antidote to the rootlessness of our own times.
