Kadir van Lohuizen travels physically to places to be witness and makes images beyond and besides the news. These visual testimonies travel themselves around the globe, hitting the original place of action occasionally. Van Lohuizen's presence in these places as well as the physicality of his work, bears witness to many forgotten and denied stories of people who try to survive the best they can. In this contribution the focus is on the photographer who is being witness and going through the process of bearing witness. Trust and truth, as well as imagination and fiction, are fundamental to this work.
