On behalf of the Rijksmuseum and NRC Handelsblad, Henk Wildschut photographed, for one year, the production of fruit, vegetables, meat, milk, fish and eggs in the Netherlands for this exhibition.

For this purpose, he visited large-scale and organic pig and chicken farmers, a fish farm, a dairy certifying agency, greenhouse farms, various laboratories, a seed improvement company and a chips producer. The exhibition paints a highly diverse and even surprising picture of how our food is produced. Photographer Henk Wildschut set off with a great deal of scepticism, but in the end he found that Dutch food production also has its benefits.
