VINCENT WAS HERE
Karin Borghouts took photographs of the Van Gogh reproduction in her
parents’ burned-out home, she became aware of her youthful memories of
this painting and the influence it had had on her visual memory. Slowly a
ball started rolling, and the photographer has since followed in
Vincent van Gogh’s footsteps several times over the past few years.
Zundert, de Borinage, Nuenen, Parijs, Arles, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence,
Auvers sur Oise… she looked and photographed things today that the
painter had looked at, drawn and painted around 130 years ago. Karin has
also made reconstructions of Van Gogh’s still lifes and photographed
The photographs from the North Brabant period are now on
display for the first time, along with the major exhibition ‘Van Gogh’s
Inner Circle’ that is being held this autumn at Het Noordbrabants Museum
in ’s Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands.

VINCENT WAS HERE
Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890) moved from place to place from quite
early on in his life, never staying in one spot for very long. In the
Borinage he decided to devote himself to art, and made some 900
paintings and 1,100 works on paper during his career. He also left 902
letters for posterity. The photographer Karin Borghouts followed in
Vincent’s footsteps, from his Dutch birthplace in Zundert to
Auvers-sur-Oise in France where he took his own life. No less than
thirteen locations, including Nuenen, Drenthe, Paris, Arles and
Saint-Rémy-de-Provence are portrayed in magnificent images. She has also
reconstructed 25 of his still lifes and photographed them.
Come and enjoy the wondrous places and themes that were Vincent’s, and view them afresh through Karin Borghouts’ lens.
Karin Borghouts’ promising book of photographs, ‘Vincent was here’ is appearing soon in a wonderfull edition by Gallery Ronny Van de Velde.
