This is seriously the coolest, I never dreamt that I'd be included in such a prestigious publication but also to be listed as GUP's New Dutch Photography talent. Okay, I'm not Dutch but my affiliation with the country now has grown over time and able to be more involved in projects like this.
The images that were featured are from the series Construct. Here is a quick preview;
For the Exhibition Opening and Book Launch, Nena and I spent the weekend in Amsterdam to get a little closer to the action. It was a fantastic night, lots of great conversations, art appreciation, and free drinks to enhance the evening and all round good vibes were had.
I met a lot of great photographers and artists which are all included in the book. It's really inspiring for me to be in a room full of so many other likeminded people, it really encourages me to just keep going and find what I am striving towards.
Afterwards we went to a unbelievably good Chinese restaurant, I wish I could remember the name of it.
If you're interested in a copy of the book I have a few remining or you can find the book for sale below.
New is a book, but functions as a catalogue, a style-guide annually featuring the best 100 emerging photographers from The Netherlands. New is a platform bringing Dutch-based photography talents to the attention of galleries, museums, commercial and photography agencies, media companies and institutions that work with imagery.
But New is much more... with its 420 pages it is a Bible to art directors, curators, collectors, photography lovers, and fellow photographers. New makes sure emerging photographers get the attention and platform they deserve.
