About the photographer
The photographer Maurice Timmermans worked as a project manager for the City of The Hague and was responsible for the introduction of the scan cars and the computer systems needed for digital parking enforcement. This gave him a behind-the-scenes view on the operation and the people who run it. During the years he worked for the Parking Department he witnessed the change into a technical, ICT-driven operation.
Maurice is a photographer with an interest in documentary work and portraiture. He studied photography at the Open College of the Arts (OCA). The OCA is an open art academy, part of the ‘University for the Creative Arts’ with five campuses in England. ‘Surveillance and Enforcement’ is his graduation project.
