Young photography talent on Rotterdam Photo
During Art Rotterdam you will also find Rotterdam Photo 2017, a photography exhibition on the Deliplein, near the Nederlands Fotomuseum. Sea containers are transformed into galleries with exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, activities and workshops. The theme this year is 'identity'.
At Rotterdam Photo this year, CBK Rotterdam presents two young and promising photographers who deal with the individual or the 'human condition'. Sophie de Vos (1992) conducts visual research into the relationship between psyche and memory function in the human body. Stacii Samidin (1987) spent the past nine years working on the series 'Societies', about collective identities. In recent years he has visited France, Suriname and the United States to record group processes within population groups. During Rotterdam Photo, Samidin will show work that he recently made in Nairobi, Kenya.
