Anda Runia Exhibition in Gouda, Netherlands

Approaching the church where the exhibition would take place was interesting. Walking through the city and suddenly there is this building, this church, the Agnetkapel. It looks very simple and clean. A brick stone building in the middle of Gouda (ja, Gouda – like the cheese!). The door is open, an invitation to everyone passing by and many people take the chance of walking in. Inside it is a clear room where lots of paintings hang on the walls, you can see the artist, Anda Runia, chatting with some people, offering a drink. A nice atmosphere and the colorful abstract paintings need that space, they need room, they need the high ceiling. So I start taking pictures, mostly pictures of the paintings and some pictures of the church. But I feel it is not enough to have one single layer.

So I rewind the film, insert it again and shoot layer two, this time I try to shoot the church, the architecture, the windows, the visitors,…
The result is a set of lomographs where art melts with architecture, the exhibition and its place are combined, are set in relationship to each other and give a new view on both parts.

Of course I sent the results to Anda Runia. Here is her feedback:

“I really am still so surprised with what you did during your visit to my exhibition. I noticed that you had a camera, but because you used it from your hip, I thought you were just making fun, trust me! I still wonder about the green colors of the shots, was this your choice?

I went through all your shots many, many times! For me it was very interesting to discover my paintings in such a different perspective! This unique combination of art, architecture, windows and visitors is really stunning and intriging to me. It needs a very intensive look, to understand and figure out what the shots are all about, and that makes them very special!
Photo nr. 2…. I love it, for the fact that I come out of one of my most favourite paintings, a mirror of my soul!
Photos 30, 31 & 34 show a beautiful interaction with one of the oldest buildings in Gouda, as if the building is merged with my paintings with the spirit in which I have painted them. Seeing these shots makes me very curious to find out and discover more!
Photo 27….. the man who puzzled me most during the whole week of exhibition, who made me very happy with all the shots he made for me by surprise!” (Note: the numbers that are mentioned here are the numbers out of the album on my lomohome, so different from the ones in the gallery here!!!)

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens: Wandering Through The Big Apple

    There’s something about New York that attracts people, something that makes both visitors from the most bucolic places and tourists from the most cosmopolitan of cities fall in love. Countless movies and television programs have been filmed in New York, and so many songs have been written in reminiscence of the place. It’s not just the Empire State Building, Times Square or Broadway; there’s something special about the streets and the people who walk on them that make spectators stop, look, and listen.
