In september 2018 I started a new project about the Black Sea, inspired by my earlier project and book Man-made Coast about the North Sea coast of the Netherlands.
In the coming years I will follow the coastline of the Black Sea to document the way people live along the Black Sea coast and I will try to show the unique landscapes and cities in each of the seven countries around its coast as well as the great historic and cultural diversity along its shores.
The countries on the Black Sea are: Turkey, Georgia, Abchazia (without international recognition), Russia, Ukraine,Rumania and Bulgaria.
In september 2018 I followed the coastline between the Turkish city of Trabzon to the Georgian city of Poti.
I am planning in the spring of 2019 to travel again to the Black Sea coastline.
