Silent witnesses

About this project

The buildings in Deventer are silent witnesses to the changes in the street scene of the past century. They have witnessed the changes in silence for the last decades. Photos from the Deventer city archive have been combined with contemporary photos. A lot has changed and a lot has stayed the same as well. The houses in the two photos often fit together seamlessly. At the same time, the use of public space has completely changed over time. As a passer-by you don't notice it, but the old buildings keep secrets of undiscovered Deventer history.
