    2006, Hans van der Meer
    The European Fields project (subtitled: The Landscape of Lower League Football) is a collection of photographs and film material that pays much more attention to the space in which the matches take place than the majority of contemporary sports photographers do. Since the mid-1990s, frequently awarded Dutch photographer and film maker Hans van der Meer...

He stayed for weeks in squalid pensions in Istanbul, where Pakistanis wait for the human traffickers who will bring them to Greece.

    2002, Diana Blok
    “Ay Dios” (literally, “Oh, God”) is a characteristic lament of Antilleans. In the combination of the meaning of the words and the way in which they are spoken resides an impalpable but also specific form of resignation, the realisation of not being able to determine (or at least fully determine) one’s own fate. It is...

    Many football associations were established in The Netherlands just after the war. In the small towns a farmer made available a pasture on which they could play. That is, they could play on the weekend, because through the week it was used by cows, pigs or sheep. Instead of the dynamics, action and drama of...

    Choosing another identity is not a new phenomenon. Everybody makes use of a different personality, or sub-personality, on some occasions, sometimes consciously, sometimes without noticing it, as when you pick up the telephone, or when you decide in front of the mirror in the morning what clothes to put on, taking the day’s schedule into...

    Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990) was a unique figure in Dutch photography. Seen internationally, he was at the top of his genre of street photography. His photography bears an affinity with the ‘decisive moments’ of Henri Cartier-Bresson, with William Klein’s probing shots and with the suggestiveness of Robert Frank. The exhibition examines the relationship between...
