Vreugdevuur Scheveningen






Citizens of Scheveningen and Duindorp (two coastal neighborhoods on the outskirts of The Hague, The Netherlands, separated by a harbor) have fought for decades to build the world’s biggest New Year’s bonfire. These bonfire towers are made of thousands of shipping pallets, stacked day and night between Christmas and New Year’s eve. Romke photographed Scheveningen’s bonfire community for its final three bonfires, between 2016 to 2019.
