Exhibition : « Scapes »
The exhibition will feature works that all play with the notion of a scape - landscape, bodyscape or cityscape.

Exhibition : « SEISUI » by Casper FaassenOn Friday May 8th Kahmann Gallery opened the new exhibition SEISUI by photographer and painter Casper Faassen. We'd like to thank everyone for making this a beautiful event. SEISUI features new works in which photography and painting techniques are combined. Faassen adds an extra dimension to his works.

However, as the technology developed, the fascination for capturing the still life has remained. While a still life can look deceptively simple, it is one of the most difficult types of art for a photographer to achieve. It requires a keen sense of lighting, as well as great compositional skills. The true test of a great artist thus lies in the creation of a still life.
