This exhibition was conceived in light of universal emotions and experiences. In search of the intrinsic value of life itself that give us strength through beauty, humor, hope and imagination. Values that feed our human consciousness and help us to overcome the trials and tribulations that we encounter in life. ALIVE! shows both artistic contemplations and human relationships in connection to society in different cultures and stages of life.

We invite the viewer to a journey inward as well as outward. Two directions, both equally important to experience life to its fullest extent.

Aloys Ginjaar and Astrid Verhoef have been working together since 2011. They strive to create an international platform for Dutch Photography and do so by organising Group-exhibitions abroad as well as in The Netherlands. Exhibitions they have so far realised has been shown in New York, Amsterdam and Tokyo. Currently they are planning another exhibition in Japan and next year they’ll organize an exhibtion of Japanese photography in Amsterdam.
