Produced by Astrid Verhoef

Dutch photography has traditionally been widely appreciated in genres like documentary, portrait, and landscape photography. Characteristics often mentioned are a solid style with a focus on everyday life and social commitment with a sense of irony. These features have not only shaped the image of Dutch photography, but have also contributed to the image of Dutch culture in general.

The culture of the image has evolved dramatically, especially in the last ten years. The communication of images has amplified due to the internet, social media, smartphones, and new digital possibilities. This change gave way to a new generation of photography. Photographers, now more than ever, enjoy the freedom to shape reality and the culture in which they live in a new and individual fashion.

Now is the time for an exhibition consisting of the contemporary photography of The Netherlands: Face the Dutch.
