Georgica by Katelijne Schrama


We float above the plains of the Flevopolder, the last land reclamation project of the Dutch government. We see how farmers carry out their duties in that ordered landscape. Over 2000 years ago, the Roman poet Virgil wrote The Georgics, an ode to farming and to life in the countryside. When the farmers hear the old texts, they spontaneously conjure up stories on what has changed, about the influence of the food industry and about contemporary regulations.
