Erik Klein Wolterink : Kitchen Portraits

Kitchen Portraits Amsterdam by Erik Klein Wolterink.

In commission of the City Archives and the The Amsterdam Fund for the Arts Erik Klein Wolterink has focused on the innards of the kitchens, as if the exterior didn’t matter.

The photographer opened cupboards, drawers, fridges and ovens. Each piece he photographed separately and reconstructed the images again to one unit. Like him, we zoom in on what the cupboards have collected over months or even decades. From instant mashed potatoes to truffle oil, from Maggi cubes to Ethiopian spice mixes. This is the raw material with which we must try to imagine who belongs to these kitchens.

    Kind of like a kitchen inventory! Reminds me of how much ‘stuff’ we actually acquire over the years – scary!
