“Geene is not only a keen observer; she is also a patient scholar, arranging the world around her. For instance, in her book, Parcel no. 235. Encyclopedia of an Allotment, 2009 – 2010, she thoroughly observed the 245 square meters of her own parcel no. 235 in the allotment garden ‘Eigen Hof’ in Rotterdam. The microcosm of her allotment became a metaphor for society at large. But what exactly is it that she is categorizing? Is this an objective reality that is universally applicable, no matter where or when? Or is she, while rooting in the earth, simply doing what she likes? Geene thus explorers the boundaries of scientific objectivity and of photography as a neutral reflection of the world.” via BredaPhoto international photo festival
