Photographers meeting Eindhoven region
Once every few months DuPho-members from the Eindhoven region come together to inform and inspire each other and have a drink together, an initiative supported by DuPho. On Thursday 21 June the photographers evening took place in Galerie Pennings in Eindhoven.
During this evening Twan van Asseldonk, DuPho member and participant of the DuPho regional working group, talked about his specialism: drone photography. The unusual viewpoint ensures surprising images. The fact that using a drone is bound by strict rules limits the possibilities of activating it. As Van Asseldonk quite frequently makes photos for agricultural companies, this is usually not a real problem. If necessary Twan hires a certified drone pilot.
The members had invited Aatjan Renders as an external guest speaker. Aatjan told tasty stories about his impressive photography. He photographs in the studio and on the streets. On the street he stands up for himself: be sent away from a place in the public space? No way! He manages to translate original ideas into catchy images. Portraits of models with ‘floating’ hair achieved by dipping them in a transparent container with water and alienating portraits realized by (partially) projecting images on the model, or combinations of old sculptures and contemporary models .
The evening was concluded with a drink and snack. The turnout was higher than expected – a great start!
