Alleen ben ik hier

This story is about isolation. In 2018 around 58.000 people left their home country in Eastern Europe to work in The Netherlands. Robert Bacso is one of them and I observed his living space and routines. As a Dutch person we see those people working usually in the technical or agricultural sector but we don't know their story. Most of them don't see their families often and they don't have much friends in The Netherlands. Although Robert is happy to be here and he is fine with his situation being so far away from his family, I felt his story was needed to be told.
