2003 Reen Sanderse and Robert van Rijn were traveling trough Spain, when they visited a pelgrimage in Andujar and Cabeze. They were overwhelmed by the emotions and colorfull dresses of the pelgrims. Robert was shooting a large amount of photos, analoog, and Reen absorted the images to work out later in her studio. They decided to visit more pelgrimages in the coming years and the gave the project the name 'PelgrimRage'

Initiated by Reen Sanderse

When they visited the pelgrimage of the gypsys in Saintes-Maries-de la Mere, France in 2009, Reen was touched by the drawings of the childeren they made for this pelgrimage, on one of these drawings a child wrote: l 'eau c'est la vie. Working out her obeservations Reen decided to start her own project within PelgrimRage based on this words: 'water is the source of our live', the outcome you can see on the page PelgrimRage.
