Last Friday was a good start of the weekend. With the opening of not one, but two photography exhibitions. Ruby and I first went to A Matter of Movement at the agency Witman Kleipool. The one-day exhibition featured the work of the agency’s seven photographers, Bart Oomes, Jouke Bos, Maarten Kools, Marc de Groot, Mick de Lint, Ruud Baan and Valentina Vos, and was inspired by the Fifa World Cup in Brazil and the theme movement.
Thanks to the mild summer weather, live Spanish music and freshly made mojito’s it was a relaxing start of the night. It was also nice to catch up with Ruud Baan en Marc de Groot, who both shot a series for an upcoming project. Of course we’ll keep you updated about that.
Eventually it was time to go to Felix &Foam at the Keizersgracht. After two months Felix &Foam (where I first wrote about HERE) opened their second exhibition; Spotlight – 5 years of talent. An overview exhibition of young photographers who were featured in the talent issue of Foam Magazine. With work selected from over five years and 7000 portfolios the exhibition gives a good impression of international photography trends and developments. After a while it was time to call it a night (and we also still had to eat). It was a good and inspiring kick off of the weekend.
