by
5/13/14 Posted 5/13/14

Irish Photographer Richard Mosse was awarded the prestigious Deutsche Börse Photography Prize for his stunning photo series and film installation documenting, in unsettlingly bright pinks and brilliant fuchsias, the armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mosse was presented with the award, including a £30 thousand prize, at The Photographers’ Gallery in London yesterday. For The Enclave, Mosse spent two years embedded with rebel forces in the war-torn eastern reg... [more]

by
Rob Hornstra at Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie December 14th, 2013 - March 9th
Posted 12/17/13

The exhibition is very noteworthy to visit. Rob Hornstra has his very own signature style, exceptional for a documentary photographer. In a certain way he tells his own stories by combining portraiture with interior photographs and occasionally a landscape. He uses colour to create an atmosphere that is both intimate and realistic _ with hard to avoid ‘nostalgic’ overtones when it comes to the worn-out interiors and environments of the former Soviet Union. His ‘snapshot’ st... [more]

by
12/23/11 Posted 12/23/11

(Image: © Viviane Sassen) Viviane Sassen (b. 1972, Amsterdam) Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen works along the thin line separating art and commerce. She is dually known for her innovative fashion work in French Vogue, Purple, and POP and for her surrealist African portraiture. Sassen uses bold, graphic shadows, vivid color and place to create images full of symbols and ambiguity. She obscures faces in deep shadows or turns them away and by doing so, she withholds essential elements which allow th... [more]

Berndnaut Smilde: On Our Amsterdam Watchlist

(Image: Berndnaut Smilde, Nimbus, Cloud in room, 2010, Lambda print, 75x112 cm; © Berndnaut Smilde) Berndnaut Smilde (b. 1978, Groningen) Berndnaut Smilde’s work often draws upon the physical presence of transitional spaces. Places such as corridors, elevators, staircases and balconies interest Smilde as spaces that exist to be in between. This interest also branches out into the possibility of how a given space might be in between states of construction and deconstruction. Using his day to da... [more]

Paul Buchanan, Laura Pardo at B32/F65 September 24th, 2011 - October 16th, 2011
Posted 10/26/11

Paul Buchanan (1970, Glasgow, UK) together with Laura Pardo (1982, Bogota, CO) forms The Souvenir Collective. The collective via public interventions and virtual performance attempts to detour the traditional exchange mechanisms that exist between producer and consumer. They create Dutch souvenirs – such as paintings of windmills at Kinderdijk – which are sold to visitors of the touristic site and online. The life of these products however doesn’t stop here – the Souvenir Collective is also ke... [more]

isabelle duval, Chester Gibs, Heleen van der Putt at Chiellerie Gallery Amsterdam June 17th, 2011 - June 19th, 2011
Posted 6/19/11

Saw this show today and it was really amazing. The explicit yet subtle drawings by Chester Gibs interacted so well with the detailed works by Isabelle Duval, and the outspoken, colourful works of Heleen van der Putt. Where opposites meet, indeed... Really a relief, to find these exciting works just outside the established Amsterdam gallery circuit. Thanks for surpising me guys. Remember those names! [more]

(Image: Martine Stig, From the series ‘Ante’, 2010, Colour print, 95 x 75 cm; © Motive Gallery) Martine Stig (b. 1972, Nijmegen, Netherlands) In her photographs, Martine Stig explores the medium of photography itself. Stig always works in series, each of which makes the viewer think about photography in a different way. She plays with our expectations, which are based on our previous experiences and on the context in which the images are presented. Han Nefkens’ H+F Collection holds two series... [more]

(Image: Katrin Korfmann, Gravitation (2 hrs), Amsterdam, 2010; © Art Affairs Gallery) Katrin Korfmann (b. 1971, Berlin, Germany) Katrin Korfmann places a lot of value on the visual composition and the creation of a fictional world, comprised of real pictures of places and people, pregnant with meaning. She choreographs her protagonists as if they were scattered across an expansive model train set. Most of the time, her pictures are presented in large scale prints and in illuminated boxe... [more]

(Image: Scarlett Hooft Graafland, Journey; © Scarlett Hooft Graafland) Scarlett Hooft Graafland (b. 1973, Maarn, The Netherlands) In a short time span of just five years, Scarlett Hooft Graafland’s photographic works have reached important international platforms for photography. This is particularly remarkable because her eclectic education did not include photography. She is, first and foremost, a sculptor who is accustomed to making concept-based works in series. She is also a resear... [more]

(Image: Ruud van Empel, Theatre #3, 2010 , Cibachrome, 120 x 120cm; © Ruud van Empel) Ruud van Empel (b. 1958, Breda, The Netherlands) Dutch visual artist Ruud van Empel hardly needs any introduction. He is a true creator of new atmospheres. His famous images of a hallucinatory world in which often children take a pose, are beyond the creation of computerized photographs. By referring to immemorial notions of virtue and innocence, his works are interesting from both an art-historical and... [more]
