Bowie by Duffy – Photographs ’72 – ’80 from the 21st of June until the 6th of October 2013 at &Foam.
During this Summer, &Foam, will exhibit an exclusive selection of images of David Bowie made by the late legendary fashion photographer Brian Duffy. Between 1972 and 1980 Duffy worked with Bowie on five photographic projects, including three of his most famous album covers – like the iconic imagery for Aladdin Sane and Lodger. The exhibition gives an insight into the creative process with a variety of prints, some of them showing behind-the-scenes, contact sheets, Polaroids, original album covers, photographs documenting the film: The Man Who Fell to Earth and several personal objects from the Duffy archive.

HoopDoop took part in an analogue photography workshop in Amsterdam, to learn more about Diana-cameras and the Lomography-movement.
The story started in the early 1990s when a group of Viennese students in Austria came across an enigmatic, small Russian camera called Lomo Kompakt Automat. The techniques and effects enabled by shooting with this camera stirred a lot of excitement: the students experienced vibrant colours, deep saturation and vignettes framing the shots like they’d never seen before. The finding resulted in the group starting up a new style of artistic experimental photography using these vintage cameras, named Lomography.

In her new solo exhibition Laura Andalou portrays 2 different women that each represent the characteristic women of PHINTAGE By Helen Yard and newborn PHINTAGE by Sharon, but the catch is, each in their opposite environments. What they have in common is their deliberated attitude towards life and their expressive appearance, described as ‘New Chic’.

The story of Sixto Rodriguez is really quite unbelievable. The sixth child of a working-class family, he recorded the albums Cold Fact in 1970 and Coming from Reality in 1971. Although both albums were true diamonds neither sold well and, as a result, Rodriguez’s music career came prematurely to a halt.
In the years that followed Rodriguez stayed in Detroit, doing hard manual labor and always being close to a state of poverty. His music, however, was becoming increasingly popular in Australia and South Africa, where his fame was comparable to Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan. What is more, some of his songs would serve as antiApartheid anthems having a great influence upon several South African musicians.
