They seem like monsters, these car wrecks. It's a nice idea and magnificently executed. There's so much to discover in these photos. It isn't a project that you can do in between things. The individual images are interesting, but as a series it works too. It's a thight series, with the cars' headlights at the same height in each image, which makes the cars' different "identities" stand out. You would like to hang these images on a wall, but size does matter: you would like to see it in very large format. 

- Jury report SO2015

Looking at Iebeltje's photographs of car wrecks I saw secret tragedies. Killed in life where the loss, the fading of all looms. Nothing is forever and that can be seen. Iebeltje shows how nature takes back what she gave. But she does more; she makes the car to be the drama of the man who thought to be beyond transcience.
