Thirty of my photos are on display as large prints at a local art gallery (in Nuenen, near Eindhoven). Paintings by Jaap Jonker are also exhibited during the same period. The gallery is open for the general public on four Sunday afternoons (see poster) between 13:00 and 17:00. Let me know if you are planning to attend (I will try to be present to show you around).
The exhibition covers four themes: Nature, People, Architecture and Abstract. Each theme is displayed in a separate room. The commonality in style across all photos is that the images strive for simplicity and elegance. Furthermore all of the photos are pretty close to what the photographer actually saw: there are no posed photos, no staged setups or no major digital manipulations.
You can see some of the photos as thumbnails at the top of this page (or here if you are reading this via the site’s home page).
Just like digital cameras have largely replaced film, digital printing techniques have pushed out dark room printing techniques in “fine art” photography during the last five years: the results are more accurate colors, wider color gamut, sharper images, better repeatability and more color stability.
My prints are printed using an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 printer using 8 color pigment ink printing. The series is printed on Ilford Galerie paper (310 g/m2, “Gold Fibre Silk” – but the name is meaningless). The mattes (passe-partouts) are acid-free and the matteing technique are based on archiving techniques (a variation of Reichmann/Schewe‘s approach). In practice this means that experts claim that such prints should look fine for 100-200 years. This may all be overdone, but I don’t expect to have exhibitions of this size too often.
The prints are framed in sizes of 50×50 cm, 50×60 cm and 50×67 cm (and one 50×70 cm).
