Exhibition of three generations of Surinamese photographers
An exhibition of work of three individual photographers will take place from May 9 to June 25 Open Air Museum in Fort Nieuw Amsterdam. Theo Tjong (73) confronts the old pictures of Paramaribo with the situation today and leave as the development of the built urban environment to see. With its fiftieth exhibition Tjong celebrates his anniversary.
Simultaneously displays Aad Nicholas (57) unusual portraits, each of which try to tell a story. "Each photo is for me a story of an encounter with the Surinamese world around me.
His much younger colleague Lugard Bryan (28) sits on top of his photographs of everyday life of Suriname. His records are sometimes rude and confrontational. The recordings must be regarded as frozen moments of everyday stories.
The work of three photographers is special, sometimes a little daring and a high technical and artistic level.
Sunday, May 16 the three photographers organize photo workshops.
