Photographer's Note

A vue from the canal-boat, crossing the river Amstel. This is the bridge which connects Rembrandtplein with Waterlooplein in Amsterdam, very nearby the flea-market, Hermitage, Rembrandt-house and Jewish museum. The bridge is built at the end of the 19th century, I guess, in neo-classical style. It is the time of the industrial revolution for Amsterdam, as one can see in the sculptures of the bridge: a lot of self-confidence. It is a complete iconografy of enterprising Amsterdam, as you can find it on the walls of Central Station, Amstel-station (beautiful wall-paintings) and Tropen-museum. You can compare it with the sculpture-programs of the gothic cathedrals, but here and now non-religious.
