Young photography talent on Rotterdam Photo
exhibition: 09 / 02 / 2017 - 12 / 02 / 2017
During Art Rotterdam you will also find Rotterdam Photo 2017 site, a photography exhibition on Deliplein, close to the Nederlands Fotomuseum. Sea containers are transformed into galleries with exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, activities and workshops. This year's theme is 'identity'.
This year CBK Rotterdam presents two young and promising photographers who deal with the individual or the 'condition human' on Rotterdam Photo. Sophie de Vos (1992) conducts visual research into the relationship between psyche and memory function in the human body. Stacii Samidin (1987) has spent the last nine years working on the 'Societies' series on 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 shows work that he recently made in Nairobi, Kenya.
