200 years ago, when the first bathing houses were placed on the beach, they marked the start of the modern Scheveningen sea-bathing culture.
The photographers family name ‘Van der Zwan’ is well-known in Scheveningen. Here, his grandfather had a fish shop and his father grew up here. The stories he heard from them sketched a completely different picture of the beach and the sea, which was full of dangers.
‘Pier to Pier’ is about the 2.5 kilometers of beach and boulevard between the northern fishing pier and the pleasure pier of Scheveningen.

“The photographer has captured the almost inexhaustible flow of day trippers in a striking way. With a sharp eye, vision, clever composition, typical use of color and flash and always with a sense of humor.”
