It has been very quiet on my website lately. Sorry for that. But I have some great news: at the end of January I have my first exhibition!
A few months ago I was asked by Chuck Baker to participate in a group exhibition with him and two other Dutch photographers. I have never had a bucket list, but if I would, this would be one of the items on that list. I said yes, and we started planning.
Chuck had already booked the venue, Kerkje van Persingen, and we met up to check it out. It is a beautiful former church on the outskirts of Nijmegen.
Next up was selecting the photographs I wanted to show. Over the years I have taken quite a number of pics, and I sorted through them to get to a first selection. Then, both my husband and I made a selection of those and we compared to see which images were overlapping. Luckily, there were several overlaps, and those made it to the final selection. We ended up selecting 14 images.
I scanned several of those photos again, and inspected all of them closely to see if there were any signs of dust or other "dirt" on the scans. Then I sent them to the printer, and ordered frames and mats. Currently I'm in the process of framing the photos, and I must say that seeing them in big print was a bit overwhelming (in a good way!).
I look forward to the exhibition, and I hope I will see some of you there!
