Things are well at the edge of town. Marieke and I recently talked to publisher Platform Gras. They are enthusiastic about our photo project about life on the edge of Groningen. Looks like this time next year our book will be released. All the more reason to shift things into higher gear and photograph even more unique locations, people and situations. This weekend we focused on the Northeast part of Groningen. At Kardinge we met these guys, who spend every Sunday biking down the Kardinge hill (in spite of any ominous skies).
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).
