“Romance in the Industry”
The old industrial area known as Strijp-S in Eindhoven was the location and inspiration for this styled wedding shoot in the Netherlands. Home to the Philips Electronic Company since 1892, their closure in 2000 lead to a period of hardship and a radical shift in the economic model of the city. A plan to develop the 270,000 square metre area of the former company into a creative and culture quarter has been an urban rejuvenation success story.
Angela Hass Fotografie’s images have managed to capture the raw industrial feel of the past. Angela, who was part of the creative team responsible for collaborating on this styled wedding shoot in the Netherlands, kindly talks us through the concept behind the project.
“To say YES to each other is the ultimate way to celebrate love; Romance!
I was asked to photograph a styled wedding shoot in a beautiful location. The old Philips industrial area: Strijp S. Industry!
Strijp S was formerly known as the ” Forbidden City ” because this place was not accessible to everyone. Still, many people went there every day to work in its huge factories which provided jobs to thousands of people. Organizer of the shoot, Marlou from Table 4 You, worked in one of the canteens as a temp in her study.
Today it is primarily a creative incubator for entrepreneurs but the atmosphere of the past is definitely present. In the past thousands of people worked here so the chance must be huge to meet someone you could have an after work drink or go dancing with together. A lot of love relations must have developed.
Now you would know how the name “Romance in the Industry” came to live and this is what we wanted to show in the photo’s. A little bit of vintage mixed with romance and industry.”
