Traditional attire photography, a century old tradition
Volendam is a beautiful fishing village with typical small houses, canals, and draw bridges. No wonder people are coming from afar to capture this image. The origin of the legendary Volendam picture can be traced back to the 18th century. Even back then people were inspired by Volendam, its residents, and the traditional attire. From 1900 onwards, a large influx of painters came to Volendam to capture this scenic fishing village. Back then, the authentic image was captured by painters, but now the best photos are made by the funniest and friendliest photographers of Fotograaf Volendam. A century old tradition transferred to a modern experience!
