Posted on Updated on

Last Friday I went to Rotterdam on a daytrip, with my good friend Katrien. I will do a couple of posts on our trip as we did so much on that one day.

In this first post, I will take you to the Kunsthal and more precisely to the exhibition we visited!

But first let me tell you a bit about this ‘Kunsthal’. This remarkable building, from the local architect Rem Koolhaas, opened in 1992. The Kunsthal is not exactly a museum, but more an exposition hall for (modern) art. It doesn’t have a permanent collection, but can however show up to 5 different expostions at a time.

Until February 12th, you can visit an exhibition about the German photographer Peter Lindbergh: ‘A different vision on fashion photography’.

Now you may not know his name, but I am sure you know his photographs! Peter Lindbergh is known for his striking black and white portraits and he is regarded as one of the most influential fashion photographers of the past forty years.

The exhibition features more than 220 photographs and also shows some exclusive material like polaroids, storyboards, personal notes, cameras, film excerpts,…

There are nine sections in the exhibition: Supermodels, Couturiers, Zeitgeist, Dance, The Darkroom, The Unknown, Silver Screen, Icons and an exclusive Rotterdam gallery with pictures of Dutch top model Lara Stone and upcoming talent Elisa Hupkes.

Now what I like so much about Lindbergh’s work, is the reality of his photographs. The portraits are honest, timeless and you just feel the connection between photographer and subject. He actually makes you look beyond the model as he takes you on a trip into his subject’s soul.

In this post I will show you some pictures my friend and I took during the exhibition,  but mind… we just took pictures of his images… all credits go to this wonderfully talented artist!

Love, Kathleen
