The source of Bonifatius

A heavenly sign of Bonifatius on the mound of Dokkum

Photo artwork from the series of 4 Frykse Folksferhalen – Frisian folk stories. At places where the Central As (new motorway from Dokkum to Nijegea) now passes, I recorded what has disappeared or changed due to the construction of the road. By editing the photos, I added the eternal of the locally transmitted stories. Recognizable elements in the daylight from when the stories were told.
