Son Lasse (5) browsing through NEW HORIZONS for the first time

Welcome, dear visitor,

to an extraordinary journey of exploration along the famous Dutch North Sea Horizon.

A journey that, for me, started during the summer of the year 2011. I contemplated dedicating a project to the theme of Space and Tranquillity. The horizon turned out to be the sublime representation of these qualities. Once I found that out, a rich and multidimensional art project unfolded, and led to an award-winning book publication and an unforgettable exhibition at the Panorama Mesdag museum in The Hague between 9 November 2014 and 8 March 2015..

During your visit to this website, I am taking you along to the horizon in the way NEW HORIZONS has taught me to keep discovering it anew - over and over again. A continuous invitation to find new places, ideas, worlds where the paved roads don't take you.

The images, experiences and insights that I have collected throughout this project: I am sharing them in every constructive manner at my disposal...

I hope my work surprises and inspires you to explore what the horizon holds for you.

Yours sincerely,


Bruno van den Elshout
