Travelling without Moving
After Bert Teunissen


After: Dutch documentary photographer Bert Teunissen,
whom alongside his documentary projects made a series named 'On the road'
depicting his travels to and from locations of his subjects.

In recent years online video platforms such as Youtube, Twitch have increased significantly,
with channels where a kind of travelers and drivers such as truck drivers,
beside vlogging about their travels also share the full extend of a journey taken,
by means of live broadcasting.
By 2020 this is already good for over a million hours of archived video material.

One can join the rides virtually at any time and since many roads have been covered,
one can basically travel the roads around the globe from their armchair.
With that the 'armchair-traveller' has got to a next level.

As I stepped back into my role as an 'armchair-traveller',
or rather an 'armchair-hitchhiker', I joined many rides,
and just as Teunissen photographed through the windscreen in front of him,
I documented the roads appearing on the videoscreen in front of me.

These images are a selection.
