WHERE THEY'RE BAKED/WHERE THEY BAKE
KEEK, Oudegracht, Utrecht
Kentemere PAN400/Ilford HP5 Plus 35 mm
A photo book, with all photos taken in the bakery of KEEK. I worked at KEEK between February 2019 and December 2020. It was the first place I could come home to after living in Manchester for almost two years.
After the decision to stop as a baker, I have a few mini demands. One is developing cinnamon rolls (which are now firmly on the menu), the other is taking a photo series of the bakers and baking. Because, it occurred to me, I still know how we move, what the rhythm and timing of the bakery is. I used the photos to send all colleagues a postcard, and the baker's portraits also adorn the wall of KEEK's new bakery location on Springweg.
This book is a collection of all the photos I took. On Ilford HP5 plus/Kentmere, 35mm. Especially for myself. To not forget what it was like to belong to KEEK and to be a baker. And for anyone who wants to know what it was like in the wharf cellar.
