From 2007 to 2009 I worked in a studio in the Southeast suburban area of Amsterdam on the ground floor of a typical Bijlmer ‘honey comb’ high-rise building. Witnessing the intricate choreographed game of dealing, I got to know some of the ‘junkies’ who lived in a housing project called ‘Domus’. Homeless drug users with a lot of ‘police encounters’ are offered a room and treatment program by The Salvation Army.
