From street photography to stylised compositions

At Image District, four different collectives show their best work – all inspired by the theme
‘Analog versus Digital’. Talented underdogs explore the boundaries of the medium through
means of photography, video, projections and installations. From street photography by
Amsterdam based collective Ed Amsterdam, to the stylised work of the artist duo Sisters Not
Twins. Gallery Vriend van Bavink presents visual artists like Noel Loozen and Aisha Zeijpveld,
whilst No Man’s Art Gallery crosses international borders by introducing a South-African
photographer whose work will be part of a new concept called Art In The Dark. Don’t forget
to bring a flashlight…

Pitches and documentaries

Saturday night, New Dawn organises a special edition of De Donkere Kamer (DDK) in
collaboration with DuPho. During this evening the main focus is upcoming talent; think of
photographers like Carlijn Jacobs, Linelle Deunk, Jan Hoek and Anouk Kruithof. As per
usual, three photographers are offered the chance to pitch a new photo project. The winner
(selected by the audience) takes home pocket money to fund their idea. ED Amsterdam hosts
a short documentary screening on Sunday afternoon, focusing on the life of Maarten van der
Kamp – an upcoming photographer who wanders the streets in search of interesting shots.

Image District opens on the 18th of September with a festive evening programme.
