Exposition STILLLIFE - Vanitas in Photography In the early days of photography, exposure times were very long, making static objects the ideal subject matter for the pioneers of the medium. However, as the technology developed, the fascination for capturing the still life has remained.

In this exhibition Kahmann Gallery will show a selection of present-day still life photography by eight renowned artists. Rutger ten Broeke, Linelle Deunk, Casper Faassen, Lonneke van der Palen, Paul den Hollander, Carla van de Puttelaar, Jeroen Toirkens and Lorenzo Vitturi will all present their interpretation...

In addition to building defensive structures, in 1975 twenty-five new infantry battalions were created and assumed responsibility for managing and defending these fortifications until 1996.
With the fall of the Soviet Union both the fortifications and the battalions guarding them were progressively dismantled.
This research is addressed at investigating those currently abandoned buildings that portray so w...
