Unseen Amsterdam 2012

Unseen Amsterdam, a photofair with a festival flair ( like this slogan!) was fantastic. I really enjoyed all the different galleries gathered in a round old building at the Westergasfabriek. Normally I am not really into photo exhibitions, but this time I saw so many nice photos!! I show you 3 of my spotted faves.

* With Nurture Studies, Diana Scherer presents an archive of flowers she has grown from seed over a six-month period. Rather than letting the flowers grow in open soil, she has forced each plant to develop within the confines of a vase. Only at the end of the process does she remove the plant’s corset, exposing roots that retain their shape as an evocation of the now absent vase.



Julie Cockburn takes found photographs and through cutting, embroidering and collaging makes them her own, her work becoming a link between the past and the present. I like the way she puts colours together. 
* And last but not least Luke Stephenson. I have written a blogpost about him a while ago. So I was trilled to see his beautiful birds at Unseen! In real they are even more pretty, the colours are so bright and soft at the same time.
