Bert Teunissen was just eight years old when his family house in Ruurlo, in the Netherlands, was demolished before his eyes. In its place, a modern house was built, but when the family moved in, the child was dismayed to find that it had lost its special character. Thirty years later, the sense of loss he felt then sent him on a quest to find the same light and atmosphere elsewhere, and he has travelled throughout Europe taking photographs of the interior of people’s houses to try to rediscover theambience of his childhood home…
Teunissen has taken photographs across eight countries including The Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France and Germany.
