Jordi Huisman's 'Close, But Not Really' Series Captures Almere Poort

There is something subtly serendipitous about the 'Close, But Not Really' photo series. The title itself is evidently enough to give viewers plenty to think about.

Shot by Amsterdam-based photographer Jordi Huisman, the 'Close, But Not Really' photo series documents Holland's fastest growing city Almere Poort. Although full of budding life, the landscape is nevertheless sterile and fabricated, a quality that is captured in this series.

What I particularly like about the 'Close, But Not Really' photo series is how it enlightens viewers and presents a very different city and culture. The world is getting smaller and smaller, and photography is just one way of bringing individuals of all areas closer together.
