ISSUE 016-08:




I took photographs of wildt-growing plants right around a big empty DIY superstore.

  This series of photos is also a comparison between black-and-white photos and color photos.

A shrub came up out of plinth of a flagpole.

  A little plant throve in the lee of a bollard.

A near-ground plant survived under the cover of a bollard. It didn't get trodden underfoot.

  The passer-bys had always kept their distance to the bollard.
The entrance to the car park of the DIY store hadn't been tended for a considerable time.

  Grasses and wild flowers grew rampant in the cracks between the slabs.

A very shallow little channel ran through the asphalt surface of a parking space. After rain water had always collected at the lowest point of the channel.

  At that point a small tuft of grass had rooted.

The asphalt surface of an other parking space had been patched some time ago.

  Grasses had come up through the cracks to the light of day.

Climbing plants had inhabited the outer fence of the grounds of the DIY superstore.

  The curtain of plants was so thick that one wasn't able to take a look at the grounds.

This photo shows the curtain of plants from another angle. The plot boundary of the neighbouring company grounds, which you see in the foreground, was clear of weeds.

  Tall-growing weeds, which had shot up at the edge of the parking lot.

Charlie Dittmeier's report about the trees, which grew rampant in the area of the temple ruins at Angkor Wat, is also worth reading. The article is dated December 23 2002.

The international poster organisation Loesje has started a project to train young people from all over Europe and Asia in how to organise and coordinate information campaigns about the Millennium Development Goals.
  These goals are set by the United Nations to fight poverty and to improve living standards world wide.
