Netherlands Photomuseum

In 2007 the Netherlands Photography Museum moved from the Witte de Withstraat position in the centre of Rotterdam and opened it's doors at it's new location on the Kop van Zuid/Wilhelminapier, amidst architectural highlights by Renzo Piano, Norman Foster, Mecanoo, etc.. Renowned Dutch Architects Benthem & Crouwel beautifully renovated and re-designed the former Las Palmas warehouse into what is since a concoction of culture, housing the museum of photography, LP2 exhibitionspcae, SKVR Image Factory and Las Palmas restaurant by Herman den Blijker a.o..

The museum funded the publication Las Palmas, dedicated to this project and commissioned three photographers: Adrienne van Eekelen, Jannes Linders and myself. Next to the photographic content there are textual contributions and essays by Joop de Jong, Ruud Visschedijk, Christine de Baan, Wijnand Galema, and interviews with Riek Bakker, a.o.. The specific question they askes me was a straightforward and liberal one: create the coverimage and show us in your specific way. That's what I worked on and the result is this image, titled Exposure. This photowork is now also part of the collection of the museum and measures 150x120cm.

The publication Las Palmas, published by NAi Publishers, Rotterdam, NL is available through bookstores around the world. Also see: publications
