‘Dijkers’ pictures show a photographer on the road, in search of a certain rhythm. As he zooms in and out, he creates a visual poetry of light and life, present and past, unfamiliar and familiar structures, people and animals in large or small spaces. Dijkers’ photographs seem to breathe, just as taking them is like breathing for him’ KUNSTHAL (MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART, ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS)
