No it's not an american-football club, it's homeless people and refugees living in the Amsterdam bushes. This is how they manage:
In the middle of this picture is a tall office building, right below that, somebody lived in the bushes.
Behind this large bush on the right is this persons home. You can see it from the railway that passes on the left.
This is what is left of the abandoned shelter.
There are clothes, a roof, a video-tape, sleeping stuff and remains of food and drinks left.
It has been derelict for 2 years now.
Behind this car workshop or rental place is a big site with several huts.
You walk along this fence.
You cross these planks. The ground is quite muddy.
And you arrive here.
Nobody was there, because I visited after a night of frost.
There are 4 huts and 2 indistinct structures like this.
There are lots of clothes, bikes, a very basic tree-platform and some places even have gas-bottles.
From the stuff that is around it is clear that there are also a number of children living here.
After I made the pictures on site 2, I took the train to Haarlem where I came across pictures by the Finnish photographer on the same subject. In museum 'de Hallen'.
