Stephen Shore / Retrospective


The work of the American photographer Stephen Shore (b. 1947, New York City) has shaped contemporary photography and inspired generations of photographers. He has never stopped exploring the boundaries of photography, and has selected subjects that were not seen as obviously photogenic. He has effortlessly switched back and forth between black and white and colour,… read more

Guido Guidi / Veramente


Guido Guidi (born in 1941, in Cesena, north-eastern Italy) had originally wanted to be an architect or a painter, but during his studies at the University of Venice he began to develop an interest in photography. By the mid-1960s he had devoted himself entirely to photography. Guidi directs his camera towards urban architecture, industrial landscapes, and periurban environments in an entirely original way. His approach is poetic and attentive, and could also be said to be descriptive in nature. His photographic work has given rise to a rich visual archive of the landscape of Italy, both natural and man-made. In 2013 Guido Guidi won the prestigious PixSea Oeuvre Award, resulting in his international breakthrough. read more

Scarlett Hooft Graafland / Shores Like You


Only in a poem can a landscape be like a person. And in a poem like this, the photographer Scarlett Hooft Graafland would be conjuring up an exotic location, as most of her photographs take shape in distant lands – as do the images in the exhibition Shores Like You, taken over the last four years. Journeys to distant places are at the root of her work, and are often inspired by stories. In recent years, Hooft Graafland has sought out a number of remarkable trees about which she had read, or been told: the dragon blood tree, native to the island of Socotra near Yemen; ‘Old Tjikko’, in Sweden, whose 9500-year-old root system makes it the oldest tree in the world and the rare conifer, Araucaria columnaris, which grows only on the Île des Pins in New Caledonia. She learned of this last species from a book about the 18th-century explorer James Cook, who was almost shipwrecked on the coral reef that surrounds the island while trying to get the closest possible look at these trees. read more

Une Femme

Une Femme, ‘a woman’, is where the story of the Dutch photographer Jeroen Robert Kramer begins and where it ends; but she is never actually shown. Kramer sketches the life of Monsieur Khiar, who – like Kramer himself – lives in Beirut, and in whose company he lives in the aftermath of civil war. The… read more
