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.
