With Grachtenhuizen (or: Amsterdam Canal Houses), photographer Arjan Bronkhorst opens the doors of some of the most amazing privately owned city palaces in Amsterdam. Bronkhorst’s subdued photographs, combined with the unique stories are what makes this publication so special. They bring to life the rich history behind the facades of the imposing houses, built in the 17th century by wealthy merchants and regents. Riding around the canals every day, we’d be tempted to think those canals are something normal. This book reminds us these canals, their houses and inhabitants are anything but commonplace.
This coffee table book has both English and Dutch Text. This book will make a great gift for people that have visited Amsterdam and are impressed by the Canal Houses. This book gives a great insight behind the closed doors.
