If robots can build cars and bomb people in foreign countries, why wouldn’t they be able to make documentary films one day?
Documentary photographer Kadir van Lohuizen is traveling from the southern tip of Chile to the very north of Alaska, creating multimedia photo stories along the way.
In March 2011, the acclaimed Dutch documentary photographer Kadir van Lohuizen embarked on one of his most ambitious adventures to date: the multimedia documentary project Via PanAm. For 40 weeks, traveling from the southern tip of Chile to the very north of Alaska, Van Lohuizen is investigating the roots of migration in the Americas, a phenomenon that is almost as old as humanity but is increasingly portrayed as a new threat to the Western world.
Van Lohuizen is expected to finish his journey in Alaska in February 2012, having traveled 28,000 kilometers (17,000 miles) along the Pan-American Highway and crossing through 15 countries. Along the way, Van Lohuizen shoots photographs, videos and interviews, and edits them into multimedia photo stories. Alongside a website, traditional print media and broadcast radio, the primary platform for the project is the Via PanAm iPad app. The audience is invited to follow in Van Lohuizen’s footsteps, while he visualizes the stories of the communities, regions and societies he encounters. Via PanAm reflects the diverse range of migration experiences, both historic and contemporary. It reflects the sociopolitical contexts, as well as the intimate and personal stories of the people involved.
Via PanAm is available in the iTunes App Store and will be showcased during IDFA as part of the IDFA DocLab Competition Showcase at the Brakke Grond Exhibition Space.
An international photojournalist best known for his long term projects on the seven rivers of the world and the diamond industry.
