展覽介紹|

國際知名攝影雜誌GUP首次來台,於8月26日起於非常廟推出荷蘭攝影新秀展,同時舉辦專家見面與座談。GUP攝影雜誌為”Guide to Unique Photography”的簡寫,攝影媒體Oitzarisme 將其評為”死前必買的雜誌之一”,與荷蘭FOAM、紐約Aperture並列為當代最重要的攝影雜誌!此次活動是歐洲攝影雜誌首次在臺灣完整的推廣與呈現。GUP的來台由雜誌編輯Erik Vroons親自領軍,展出歷年獲選“荷蘭新秀攝影師” (New Dutch Photography Talent)的攝影作品。荷蘭新秀攝影師的選秀是GUP雜誌舉辦的年度盛事,為荷蘭攝影界高度重視,每年選出最優秀的100位攝影藝術家的作品,收錄在年度出版的專輯之中。

‘New Dutch Photography Talent’ is an annual catalog established by GUP, an international magazine on photography based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since 2012, 100 emerging photographers who are within the first five years of their career are presented in these catalogs. Most of them are Dutch by origin, but some non-natives are also included when they have completed their studies at one of the many art academies or photography schools in The Netherlands.
來台的攝影作品來自Eva Roovers、Iris van Gelder、Justine Tjallinks、Marike Groeneveld、Rutger Prins、Sander van der Bij、Lonneke van der Palen、Lizette Schaap 8位歷年獲選荷蘭新秀的攝影師作品,其中更包括東京國際攝影獎(TIFA)、鏡頭文化(LensCulture Portrait)、西恩納(Siena)國際攝影獎、Gosee攝影獎等國際重要獎項的得主,堅強的陣容也顯示出GUP對首次來台展出的重視程度。

For this exhibition, Erik Vroons (editor-at-large for GUP Magazine) has selected 8 outstanding New Dutch Photography Talents: Iris van Gelder, Marijke Groeneveld, Eva Roovers, Lonneke van der Palen, Rutger Prins, Lizette Schaap, Justine Tjallinks, Sander van der Bij.

除了一系列以荷蘭攝影藝術為主題的活動外,VT更爭取到與GUP合作推廣臺灣藝術家的難得機會。兩個單位將在2018年持續合作,於GUP的平台上推出臺灣攝影藝術的專題。這個活動首先在今年8/29-30以專家見面會的方式公開徵選可能躍上版面的潛力藝術家,對於喜愛攝影藝術和專職的創作者來說都是不可能放過的好機會。

All these emerging photographers have established, in an early stage of their career, a distinctive and distinquished style of working with the medium of photography. More than merely pushing the button and thus ‘recording’ what is to be seen, they all have a tendency to intermediate and to compose their own, unique way of looking at the world.

GUP源自攝影蓬勃發展的荷蘭,雜誌專門刊載攝影相關的社群、觀念、評論與觀察內容。自2005年開創以來,GUP一直在國際攝影藝術界扮演重要的角色。雜誌從實體紙本雜誌的發行開始,之後擴張到網站及社群網路的經營。透過網路社群每日更新的內容,GUP得以與讀者保持緊密而且即時的關係。目前GUP的專業顧問來自100個以上的國家,並且持續在增加,以確保GUP是當前最專業、最即時的知識傳遞者。GUP實體雜誌在美洲、澳洲、亞洲等超過28個國家裡擁有通路,每一期發行約15000本,在台灣網路與實體平台也都能找到這本雜誌,擁有2000多個固定訂閱戶,是對於當代攝影藝術具有可觀影響力的媒體

‘Highlights: New Dutch Photography Talent 2012-2017’ at VT Artsalon gives a comprehensive sample of the various directions in which the medium of photography is moving in The Netherlands: from portraiture to landscape, and from installations to collages, all the works on display are a clear expression of the autonomous approach of each of these young visual artists.
