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!!!)

    Janne Parviainen: Light Magician

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

    Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!

    On my birthday, I climbed the holiest mountain of Bali on a genuine pilgrimage. Walking towards Pura Besakih is also a tale about Balinese Hinduism, which is a singularity in Indonesia. So tighten your sarong around your hips and stick with me on this spiritual passage through the gates of heaven.
