Vanitas in Photography

Exhibition: 11 October – 30 November 2014
Opening: Saturday, 11 October, 18:00 - 20:30 h

In the early days of photography, exposure times were very long, making static objects the ideal subject matter for the pioneers of the medium. However, as the technology developed, the fascination for capturing the still life has remained. While a still life can look deceptively simple, it is one of the most difficult types of art for a photographer to achieve. It requires a keen sense of lighting, as well as great compositional skills. The true test of a great artist thus lies in the creation of a still life.

Casper Faassen: Bloemstuk

In this exhibition Kahmann Gallery will show a selection of present-day still life photography by eight renowned artists. Rutger ten Broeke, Linelle Deunk, Casper Faassen, Lonneke van der Palen, Paul den Hollander, Carla van de Puttelaar, Jeroen Toirkens and Lorenzo Vitturi will all present their interpretation of still life photography. An underlying theme in this exhibition is vanitas, the type of still life in which the transient nature of our earthly lives is depicted.
