Citizen of Two Worlds

In this book the brothers Henk and Samuel Otte follow in the footsteps of their great-grandfather Rev. Gerrit Hendrik Kersten, an influential Dutch Protestant minister who in 1939 went to the United States to give emigrant members of his church encouragement and support. The result is a visual road trip to the towns, families, churches and farms that Kersten visited, with accompanying archive pictures and diary entries.

Selected as one of the best photo-books by De Volkskrant.
