The 16th edition of FotoFestival Naarden will take place from Saturday, May 25th to Sunday, June 30th, 2019 and I will be participating! A dream come true. My mother used to live in Naarden and we would always visit the exhibition, long before I became a photographer myself. Curators this year are photographer Koos Breukel and photo historian and author Hedy van Erp.
This years edition’s theme is ‘Dutch Masters & Marvelous Misfits’ and it has been made with the intention to praise and include the misfit. The misfits presented at the FotoFestival are greater masters than they are given credit for – they are marvelous misfits. Anna Witsen perfectly fits this description. I am very pleased to showcase my series of this intriguing lady here at this highly regarded festival.
