Cool prison...


Cool prison...
A couple of months ago I got the opportunity to walk around, with my camera and 11 other photographers, in the beautiful empty prison in my home town. Even the famous Dutch resistance hero Hannie Schaft has been kept locked in here by hte Germans in WW2. I have been biking past this building since I was born. For years now there are no prisoners kept in there anymore and it's been used to house refugees and now it's totally empty.
They are planning to create an university in there, after adjusting the inside of the building. The accoustic in the center of the main hall is really crazy, it would drive many man crazy being kept prison there. Even the guards needed rest after their shift. One guard would sit in his car for half an hour enjoying the silence, before driving home to his family. I just love this building.
