Kahmann Gallery is proud to announce it will be participating in the first edition of the photo fair PhotoMarket, held during Stockholm Art Week from February 15-17. PhotoMarket is presented by Fotografiska, the museum for contemporary photography in Stockholm. Through PhotoMarket, Fotografiska aims to present the global photo market to the Swedish audience in an international setting with some of Europe’s most prestigious photo galleries represented. A number of seminars and lectures with some of Sweden's leading photographers and collectors will be arranged during PhotoMarket.
Kahmann Gallery is one of only eight chosen galleries participating in this fair. Other galleries include Galeries Vu (Paris), Camera Work (Berlin), Forma (Milan) and Bukowskis (Stockholm).
Kahmann Gallery will be presenting the following photographers at PhotoMarket:
SANNES SANNES (1937-1967) only had a short career in photography due to his untimely death at the age of 30 in a car accident, but still managed to place himself alongside Ed van der Elsken and Gerard Fieret as the photographers who defined Dutch black and white photography in the Sixties. Kahmann Gallery will bring a small selection of vintage works by Sannes.
ALBERT WATSON (1942) is one the greatest in photographic history. With his career spanning more than three decades, he has produced work in almost every conceivable genre, from advertising to fashion to portraits and landscapes. He has shot over a 100 Vogue covers and 40 for Rolling Stone. Kahmann Gallery will be showing a varied selection of Watson’s work, ranging from his fashion and celebrity photographs to his autonomous work.
ANTOINE D’AGATA (1961) is a photographer who never shies away from taboo subjects. His photographs are brooding and troubling, yet at the same time beautiful and lyrical, making them a fascinating paradox. D’Agata learned the trade from fellow provocateurs Larry Clark and Nan Goldin. In 2004 d’Agata joined Magnum Photos. He has published several photobooks and his work has been featured in numerous exhibitions. Kahmann Gallery will represten D’Agata with a small selection of more recent works.
CARLA VAN DE PUTTELAAR (1967) lives and works in Amsterdam. In her photographic work Van de Puttelaar wants to emphasize personality, vulnerability and intimate eroticism, as well as distance, and sometimes, alienation. Her nudes draw heavily on the use of close-up effects and the use – or deliberate non-use – of focus. Kahmann Gallery will show some of Van de Puttelaar’s more recent works, as well as some earlier ones.
SCHILTE & PORTIELJE is made up of Huub Schilte (1953) and Jacqueline Portielje (1958). In their work they intensively explore the rich possibilities of the computer as an artistic medium. The computer is both their photography dark room and as well as a painting and drawing tool. Their work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications. Ahead of their solo-exhibition opening at the Kunsthal Rotterdam on February 23, Kahmann Gallery will bring a selection of their works.
