Streets of the World exhibition at Zuidas in Amsterdam

Category Exhibitions

As from Thursday 7th of March, the Streets of the World photo exhibition will be on display at a very special location:  the fences at the construction site of Zuidasdok in the centre of Zuidas in Amsterdam. For this purpose Jeroen Swolfs affiliates with project organisation Zuidasdok, Hello Zuidas and consortium Zuidplus. It is the first time that all 195 photos of every country in the world are displayed next to each other, that are connected to one another thanks to the continuous horizon.

Behind the Streets – Video Walk

Streets of the World also created a scoop for the specifically designed and downloadable Behind the Streets – Video Walk, in which Jeroen Swolfs takes visitors personally on a world tour through his most fascinating photographs. You can download the Video Walk in English here for €4,99 (also available in Dutch).

Observe and learn

The Streets of the World is not only interesting for fans of photography. Specifically for this exhibition, education specialist Liesbeth Breek has developed an educational package that focuses on global citizenship. She uses the Slow Looking method where the viewer is challenged to look beyond their first impression. The main message of this method is to be able to make a good observation and stimulates developing the thinking skills. 

Streets of the World Tour

Jeroen Swolfs has far-reaching plans with his life work Streets of the World. Streets of the World Zuidas is the second official stop of the Streets of the World Tour where he returns to all the countries in the world in order to bring back his photos and message to connect humanity. The Streets of the World exhibition is free of charge.

How do I get there?

Imagine going to almost two hundred different countries searching for that one street (or sometimes harbour or railwaystation) that symbolizes a whole community.

Jeroen did it and brought these streets together in his Streets of the World Photo Book.

His Photo Book is for people who want to discover what a street means to society, education, wisdom, youth, experience, happiness, stories, food and so much more.
