Although your schooldays may have seemed pretty dire, it’s always fun to chuckle at schoolchildren at this time of year when you know they’re all having to go back to triple science and haircuts and you’re a grown-up who can do whatever you want (within reason). Raimond Wouda’s Schools project takes you back to the days of cramped locker rooms and sparse dance floors, completely immersing you in the pubescent whiff of hundreds of Dutch teenagers.
Rather that portraying them as sluggish and smelly, as we Brits occasionally stereotype youngsters, Raimond sees them more as a useful way of studying human behaviour. Deliberately focusing only on the areas between lessons, the teeming masses of youths congregate together and interact, which proves to be particularly fascinating to witness.
