Over (Sluiskil)

Ongoing project about travelling by ferries over waterways. The canal between Ghent (Belgium) and Terneuzen in the Netherlands has three oportunities to cross by ferry. All these crossings I filmed with the camera on a tripod. I filmed the whole trip from A to B and back to make a loop. Every trip ends where it started. The static view leads the attention to simple things that happen during the crossing; people entering the ferry, waves, a meeting with another skipper and the beauty of the game between shadows and sunlight. The collection of filmed crossings is far from complete.
