During the opening I will present my new publication with a large selection of my work from 2003 till now.

To finance my new publication I offer two special editions!

Pictures from another wall

The collection of Huis Marseille at De Pont
15/02/2020 – 05/07/2020

Huis Marseille, Museum voor Fotografie in Amsterdam, bestaat twintig jaar. Met een tentoonstelling van zo’n honderd werken uit de collectie wordt dit lustrum gevierd in de nieuwe vleugel van de Tilburgse zusterinstelling museum De Pont.
In de afgelopen twee decennia heeft Huis Marseille een mooie verzameling bijeengebracht van ruim zevenhonderd fotowerken van internationaal toonaangevende fotografen als Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, Andreas Gursky, Andres Serrano, Deana Lawson, Viviane Sassen en Jean-Luc Mylayne. Maar ook minder gevestigde namen zijn vertegenwoordigd, zoals Jamie Hawkesworth en Julie Greve, die opereren op het snijvlak van mode en kunst.

Het vervagen van grenzen binnen de fotografische discipline is een van de invalshoeken van de tentoonstelling in De Pont, die zich concentreert op de aanwinsten van de afgelopen vijf jaar. Zowel de digitale revolutie, de alomtegenwoordigheid van fotografie online en de terugkeer naar analoge praktijken zijn van invloed op de vraag wat fotografie anno 2020 is. En hoe ga je binnen een museale verzameling om met die nieuwe ontwikkelingen? Pictures from Another Wall probeert op die vraag een antwoord te geven.


La Soupe de Daguerre

Fotomuseum Den Haag
07/09/2019 – 22/03/2020

An exhibition with a selection out of de collection of the Photomuseum The Hague.

Almost all of us take photographs every day using our smartphone. The vast majority of them are never printed, but are shared online or stored in digital form. As a result, we generally do not experience these photographs as physical objects, but as intangible images. Photos that are printed are, however, not necessarily regarded as objects either. One of the reasons for this is that the visual idiom of photography is largely realistic: a photograph of a person is an exact likeness of that person. Photography is a ‘transparent’ medium – when we look at a photograph it is as if we are looking directly at what is portrayed in the photograph. The material of the photograph itself becomes invisible, as it were. The properties of the material of which a photograph is made are however vital to the story told by the photograph.
