The opening ceremony on Monday April 14th at 20.00h will be chaired by three prominent figures of the Dutch photographic scene: Martijn Kleppe, researcher/historian from Erasmus University; Hans Akkersdijk, one of the first Dutch photographers to be awarded by Zilveren Camera in 1954; and Rob Hornstra, winner of the Canon Prize and World Press Photo Award with his Sochi Project, realized in collaboration with his colleague Arnold van Bruggen.
The images we are showing in Hengelo are At Home with… Andrew and Irene by Richard Sandell, Gay Warriors by Tatjana Plitt, The Pink Choice by Maika Elan, The Other Side of Venus by Anna Charlotte Schmid, Princesses in a Land of Machos by Nicola Ókin Fríoli and The Gay Families Project by Stefan Jora.
