Millers 
(Molenaren)


One day I drove past a windmill and I wondered if people still live there and if they are still in use. I wanted to find this out and took a closer look at the life of a miller today.
        The miller profession barely exists anymore, nowadays the millers are voluntary. Besides being a miller people have a fixed job. However the miller life still exist in The Netherlands, people live in there; even big families. Mills became monuments and are being replaced when they are surrounded by buildings and don’t have a function anymore through the lack of wind for windmills.

This is an ongoing project since I meet a miller every once in a while.
