Window dressing is a journal of images
of shop windows from the Netherlands,
France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and
the United States.
In shop windows people present their
products and businesses to other people.
In many cases, the product are matched
with architecture that was not designed
for such products.
Schierbeek finds these marriages
The changing of the facades, the artistry
of display, the unexpected people walking
into the image, the different reflections on
the glass and the ever changing light all
have his attention.
One tends to get lost within these images
Inside and outside get fully mixed up pro-
ducing a 3d feel.
In many of his photographs the puzzle
really gets complicated but at the same
time they show a new unforeseen struc-
It is remarkable how Schierbeek manages
to create a new spacial order in the
chaotic urban environment.
It is exactly what his steel and glass
sculp-tures are about; reflection and
transparency and thereby creating a new
structure in space.
