A Portrait of Europeans at Home

Dutch photographer Bert Teunissen has documented hundreds of old European homes, creating an impressive photographic archive of disappearing architecture.

These rudimentary yet cultured settings aglow with a warm, timeless atmosphere; spaces in which a primary interior feature is that of natural light. Old World details crowd the frame of each image: ornate wallpaper, ancestral portraits, home-cured hams hung from exposed beams, and decorative dishware proudly displayed on mantels.

The homes pictured in this book were built before both World Wars, before electricity, a time when sunlight played a pivotal role in the conception of architecture. Teunissen renders these last vestiges of old Europe with a palette and sensitivity to light that recall Dutch master painters.
