Title: What We Wear
By: Pieter van den Boogert
Publisher: Keff & Dessing Publishing
Pieter van den Boogert shows us the world of the clothing industry. He travelled to Bangladesh to photograph examples of production; he worked in The Netherlands and gives us an insight behind the scenes of fashion shows and big department stores. Because of the fact that people in the West want to by their clothes as cheap as possible, people in the production countries have to work for almost nothing. Finally Pieter followed the clothing to Ghana where it is sold as second hand goods but also showing us that more and more we in the West use Africa as our garbage dump.
The book is designed for Pieter van den Boogert’s graduation at the KABK, The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Printed in a limited edition of 500.
