De Parel-ketting

The name ‘De Parel’ (The Pearl, La Perle, Die Perle, La Perla, Den Perlen, …), although indicating a precious possession, is a common name given to commercial businesses. Traveling around the Netherlands and Belgium, I photographed 28 businesses called ‘De Parel’. My route is a necklace with pearls strung together via motorways. De Parel-ketting is a three meters long concertina, similar to the well-known souvenir for tourists. An accordion of postcards, a necklace of pearls.
