Meer informatie over de fotoroman Flipping The Bird:
'Flipping the Bird' is een verhalend beeldverslag, een fotoroman eigenlijk, van een lange en intensieve wandeling in de duinen, waarbij de hoofdpersoon zich opnieuw probeert te verbinden met de natuur. Tijdens deze wandeling wordt hij langzaam verliefd op het landschap, de flora en de fauna en hij denkt dat deze liefde wederzijds is. Er ontstaat een bijzondere, surrealistische, humoristische en confronterende dialoog tussen mens, flora en fauna. Op het hoogtepunt komt de hoofdpersoon erachter of de liefde wederzijds is en kiest hij zijn weg...
Het verhaal speelt zich af in de duinen in verband met de voortdurende dreiging van de zee voor mijn land. Het menselijk handelen en de keuzes die we nu en in de toekomst maken zijn daarbij van groot belang.
Kleine quote waardoor dit project voor mij urgent werd:
 "Ik ben begonnen met wandelen en fotograferen in het bos en later de duinen en vond bij de dood van mijn Opa het fotoboek De Ramp van 1953 in zijn kast. Dit boek gaf me de ultieme urgentie om van dit wandelen een ​verhaal te maken. Een ramp die ver weg lijkt, maar die ik wil laten bezinken in het collectieve geheugen om herhaling te voorkomen. Dit verhaal was voor mij het sleutelmoment om dit project voort te zetten."
De fotoroman specificaties: 216 p, ills colour, 13,5x20,5 cm, pb, Engelse en Nederlandse uitgave.

Synopsis of the photonovel Flipping The Bird:
‘Flipping the Bird’ is the narrative visual report, a photo novel actually, of a long and intensive walk in the dunes, in which the main character tries to reconnect with nature. During this walk he slowly falls in love with the landscape, the flora and the fauna and he thinks that this love is mutual. A special, surreal, humorous and confrontational dialogue is created between people, flora and fauna. At the climax the main character finds out if the love is reciprocal and chooses his path...
The story is set in the dunes in connection with the continuous threat of the sea to my country. Human actions and the choices we make now and in the future are of great importance in this regard. Jaap Scheeren: “I started out walking and photographing in the woods and later the dunes and found the ultimate urgency to make this walking a project in The flooding Disaster of 1953, especially when I came across the book of the same name in my grandfather’s bookcase. A disaster that seems far away, but which I want to settle in the collective memory to prevent a repetition. For me, this story was the key moment to continue this project.”
