Stadsfotograaf MAS


  • MAS Stadsfotografen 0038 39
  • The exhibition ‘City Photographer’ will bring Antwerp’s many faces to the MAS Boulevard from 25 April 2017. Fifteen city photographers, chosen between 2012 and 2015, supply a diverse range of photos. They create an unprecedented love letter to the city in all its manifestations. The exhibition ‘City Photographer’ shows Antwerp from an unusual perspective. Fifteen very different photographers present works that they submitted for the project ‘Stadsfotograaf Antwerpen’, which was founded by Roger Smulewicz of Gallery Fifty One in 2010.
    The MAS asked curator Kaat Celis to make a selection from the 15 portfolios and to create one huge, inspiring and surprising look at the city. This results in a visual love letter for Antwerp, an associative narrative on the love-hate relations with the city from a photographer’s point of view. Different periods, places and styles are brought together on eight floors under eight emotions.
    The love letter is a fusion of images from 15 famous and less well-known photographers: David Ameye, Jef Beirinckx, Karin Borghouts, Frederik Buyckx, Sanne De Wilde, Jasper Léonard, Charlotte Lybeer, Sigrid Spinnox, Davy Van Laere, Stany Dederen, Sacha Jennis, Dieter De Lathauwer, Myriam Vertenten, Lara D’hondt and Ksenia Galiaeva.
