De Ruijter has documented the open landscapes of the Netherlands and Iceland, made repeated trips to the American Southwest, and with the help of Google Earth, De Ruijter has also turned his creative attention to agriculture The view of his subject is most often from above, with images unconventionally captured while skillfully piloting a kite or fishing rod.

While in Wichita, De Ruijter will continue his aerial observations of the land. He will capture a 360 degree panorama image from a center pivot irrigation arm, and also launch a new project that examines the “grid corrections” along Kansas county boundaries.
