Wednesday September 7 is the start of a photography exhibition at the library in Groningen. The exhibition is part of the annual Noorderlicht Foto festival. At the library reading cafe photos from the series ‘In Search of Americans’ will be on display, a project for which me and journalist Eva Kelder traveled through the United States for three months. All photos on display are for sale. Not just in the frames in which they are exhibited, but also as single prints. The exhibition runs through October 30.

I recently photographed two new product designs by Jack Brandsma: Hang On and Son of Edi. The photos were used for a card that introduces both products. Jack’s designs can be seen this week at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
This month, my photo series about old farms that are used for recreational purposes was published. The Nationaal Programma Herbestemming used the photos to illustrate several articles about the demographic decline in Holland. Check out their newsletter and website .
This week, New York photographer Ken Schles came to Groningen to work on his new book and upcoming exhibition at the Noorderlicht gallery this fall. In addition, he gave a lecture about A New History of Photography. In 2007, Ken and I had an exhibition together at the Usva gallery: Cityscapes. It showed his photos of Groningen along with my photos of New York.
This Sunday, February 13, Het Paleis hosts another Cultural Sunday. In addition to many activities, this time with a Valentine’s Day theme, all artists open up their studios to the public. Everyone is welcome to stop by at my studio (ground floor, number 144-6).
