Definitely on our to do list for this month: GRID2012, a bi-annual international photography festival about contemporary visual culture held in several spots in The Netherlands.
Find in here expositions from more than 100 artists from 38 different countries. Theme of this year: Urban Reality Check – Reflections on changing behaviour and space. That explains for sure the opening photo!
A must-go is DOCUMENTED: Men’s Cult from Dutch men’s magazine CODE which only uses real people for their fashion shoots. The result is a not typical editoral like we often see in many magazines: the shoots in CODE look more like documentary photography than in particular fashion. In DOCUMENTED: Men’s Cult you’ll find work of upcoming and renowned photographers like Benni Valsson, Robin de Puy, Iain McKell, Sean Beolchini, Marco Scozzaro, Ben Rayner and Karen Rosetzsky.
You can visit GRID2012 untill July 1st. The main location is in Amsterdam. Find more info in here www.gridphotofestival.com.
