Schiphol at night

Schiphol airport is an interesting and busy place. It’s always packed with people, which isn’t strange since they handle more than 40 million passenger each year. Schiphol is open 24/7.. All though, after 24:00 the place isn’t so crowded..

Arriving at Schiphol airport (for me) always feels like coming home. But I never stayed long at Schiphol airport, after a long flight. I always passed trough the airport, as quick as possible. Memories of Schiphol are always grainy and flashy..

I tried to capture those grainy and flashy memories. I had to pick someone up at 1 o’clock in the morning, so there are no bagage belts and grumpy/ tired faces (unfortunately). Just an (almost) empty main hall.

Welcome home.

This set was shot on a roll of Kodak portra 400NC. It expired in 2007, hence the high levels of grain.
