I am very happy that my work Singularity will be on show during the Noorderlicht International Photo Festival in Groningen. Location and dates to be announced. This years topic “‘Generation Z’ is about the mindframe and the energy of the youngest generation of world citizens, born after 1995. What is their place in society, how do they see their future, what are their ambitions, especially in view of the crisis in which the world now finds itself? By tapping into their basic attitude, Noorderlicht wants to provide insight into their lives.”

“As Noorderlicht is trying to find its way in the current situation, which affects everyone, she is continuing to prepare for the 27th edition of the Noorderlicht International Photo Festival. A sharp selection of work has been made for GENERATION Z, which shows a generation that focuses on fundamental emancipation processes. Given the daily changing expectations for the future, the festival will be launched later in the summer and the Noorderlicht team is thinking about alternative forms of presentation.” (graphic and texts: Noorderlicht Festival; photo: © Tanya Klimovich – from the series ‘Space city’ (2020))

“To celebrate the launch of a major new partnership between FORMAT and Lishui International Photography Festival in China, Director of FORMAT, Louise Fedotov-Clements, has curated Sleight of Hand, an exhibition presenting work by six artists – Brian Griffin; Regine Petersen; John Angerson; Yvette Monahan and Jan Stradtmann, plus Max Pinckers (curated by Tim Clark), at Lishui Art Museum.

Each of the projects examines belief, control and misdirection through photography by unravelling our understanding of history, landscape and documentary. They challenge our concept of storytelling by looking beneath the surface layer of the image and encouraging viewers to look for longer, offering multiple realities through skilful deception and layered narratives.” (screenshot and text: FORMAT Festival)
