... Festival Paris Photo 2015 : La Flatland Gallery expose Flatland Gallery is proud to announce to be part of the 19th edition of Paris Photo 2015, which will be held at the historic Grand Palais in Paris. The gallery will present the work of Paolo Ventura, Erwin Olaf, Anoek Steketee, Jeroen Robert Kramer, Katharine Cooper and Ruud van Empel.
Italian artist Paolo Ventura is a storyteller. Each of his pictures holds its own little mystery, a concoction of atmosphere, character and detail that urges for closer examination. Ventura, like a true master illusionist, makes things disappear in front of our eyes. At Paris Photo we will show his latest work ‘The Infinite City,' which is inspired by his travels on New York City's above ground train lines as well as by Italo Calvino's writings. In this unique piece Ventura built and painted a group of...

o... Festival Cortona on The Move is waiting for you
Cortona On The Move, photography in travel, is the first international festival centered on this genre of photography. Thinking about this event, we have given the journey the importance it deserves declining this word in all its forms and definitions. Our times are characterized by nomadism, speed and everyday's mobility: ways of being in motion, to explore, watch, find out. Cortona On The Move, photography in travel responds to this conceptually widespread idea of travel where the photography and photographers, travelers by definition, are the focus of the attention and are leading us through their eyes in various corners of the world and beyond.
Traveling, moving, migrating, being in motion are all well known conditions, common to human civilizations of all times and geographical areas and have different m... Exposition Anoek Steketee « DREAM CITY » by photographer Anoek Steketee and writer Eefje Blankevoort

Sparkling lights, ice cream stores and a fairytale decor. The young Dutch photographer Anoek Steketee and the writer Eefje Blankevoort visited amusement parks in Iraq, Lebanon, Rwanda, China and other countries in the world. Steketee photographed visitors, the surroundings and personel.
Behind the innocent and light hearted character of the subject, a staged, serious and darker undertone is tangible. The images show us the stark contrast of the dream world in the park and the daily reality outside the fences.
