Lars van den Brink: Here lives the Day
The show will open at the new location Atelier K84 in the heart of Amsterdam. Contour Gallery hosts the premiere exhibition in this space, with powerful works by Dutch photographer Lars van den Brink. On display are the esteemed works from his series: Behind the Day of 2020, and a selection of the much-loved series: Frozen Time, with an emphasis on works of art made in Amsterdam. A limited and signed edition of only 30 prints is available for purchase for each work.
Behind the Day is the sequel to Frozen Time, in which Lars first used a technique that brings both day and night into one image. In this new series, he has explored ways to 'paint' with photographic material, to amaze the viewer and lift him out of reality. By letting go of the unity of time and combining different shots, he distances himself from the analytical nature of photography and is able to create images that go beyond mere registration.
