Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam 2014
Yesterday we (Mimi Blogger Team) visited the Unseen photo fair in Amsterdam. Unseen is a small fair showcasing international gallery’s/artists. As we wandered through the booths we noticed a lot of anonymity on show. Faces hidden, cut out or otherwise undone of their identity. The hidden image (with white paint) by Cornford and Cross was the most anonymous work at the fair by far. Also on show; a lot of product photography. Everyday-products such as toys, machines, food and what have you not, were both altered (mostly stacked) or left untouched, then photographed. We took some photo’s for you all of what we noticed. Do visit the Unseen site if you’d like to see what we didn’t notice. Unseen is the international photography fair focused on undiscovered photography talent and unseen work by established photographers. Unseen, the fair with a festival flair, from 18 to 21 September 2014 at Amsterdam’s Westergasfabriek. The Unseen Book Market is exactly what it says; a market with photography books, it’s good to see so many nice books and magazines in one place! Unseen and Lecturis have designed a photobook dummy award to showcase the work of exceptional photographers from around the world and to give them a chance to realise and publish their photobook dummy. The award, now in its third year, gives the winning photographer an entry into the international photography industry. The winner of this year is Simon Rimaz, his book will be published by Lecturis and presented at next year’s Unseen.
