about the project

The People of the Netherlands project is a portrait photography project instigated by Maurice Jager. 

The goal

The goal of the project is to photograph a person for each nationality that lives in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands is a country with a variety of people and nationalities, different offsprings and different roots.

The project wants to achieve to show all the different faces who live in this beautiful country to create more awareness and acceptance towards others. 

If you live in the Netherlands, but have roots elsewhere, I want to invite you to join the project and let me photograph you in my Arnhem studio, at no cost.

You can have the Dutch nationality, as long as you, or your parents or grandparents, have roots elsewhere and migrated to the Netherlands at some point.

The progress of the project can be followed online on this website and on Maurice Jager’s social media accounts.
