De Walvis is a story of one building. An office space at Bickerseiland in Amsterdam that got a second life. Commissioned by Maarsen Groep photographer Hans Wilschut follows the process of its reconstruction for almost two years, documenting the site inside and out. While the subject is concrete the artist approaches it in a poetic way, showing the subtle beauty of forms and textures. Go through the book’s pages and you will see the building in such a detail as if you were twisting an achitectural model in front of you.
