Dutch Waterworks Worldwide documents the story of architecture and landscape photographer Luuk Kramer’s journey documenting waterworks built by Dutch engineers around the world, from the sixteenth century to the present day, from polders in Poland to dikes and dams in Japan, from canals in Brazil to a small lock in Surinam.

The Dutch brought knowledge gleaned from centuries of experiences with living in a delta, including land reclamation efforts, droughts and catastrophic floods. They were invited by local governments or came at the heels of colonizing forces, leaving very different legacies and perspectives on their contributions and roles. Dutch Waterworks Worldwide presents these different views in interviews and essays by experts from the countries concerned. Featuring Luuk Kramer’s stunning photographs, this beautifully designed book showacases an important collection of shared global water heritage for the first time.
