Marjolein van Pagee -

As a documentary photographer, Marjolein is fascinated by social issues as colonial history, religion and traditions, and she prefers to work with a combination of photography and text.

For several years she is working on a project called Kembang Kuning - Yellow Flower, centering around Dutch military actions in Indonesia, from 1945 to 1949. This history gots her attention when she found an old yellowed portrait of her grandfather, who was a marine during this colonial war. After his return he never talked about it ever again, till his death in 2005. Marjolein reconstructed his story by interviewing and photographing Dutch and Indonesian veterans.
