In the photography project ‘Thought provoking, sense provoking' the photographers processed their ideas and experiences into eight series that collectively engage in a highly creative game with architecture and photography. Participating photographers: Wijnanda Deroo (Netherlands/US), Beth Yarnelle Edwards (US), Isabelle Hayeur (Canada), Bill Jacobson (US), Thomas Kellner (Germany), Anoek Steketee (Netherlands), Mitra Tabrizian (Iran/UK) and Danwen Xing (China).
