(c) Benedicte Kurzen

Kadir van Lohuizen (The Netherlands, 1963) has covered conflicts in Africa and elsewhere, but is probably best known for his long-term projects on the seven rivers of the world, the rising of sea levels, the diamond industry and migration in the Americas. He started to work as a professional freelance photojournalist in 1988 covering the Intifada. In the years following, he worked in many conflict areas in Africa, such as Angola, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Liberia and the DR of Congo. From 1990 to 1994 he covered the transition in South Africa from apartheid to democracy.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Kadir covered social issues in different corners of the former empire. In 1997 he embarked on a big project to travel along the seven rivers of the world, from source to mouth, covering daily life along these lifelines. The project resulted in the book “Rivers” and “Aderen” (Mets & Schilt). Kadir has received numerous prizes and awards in photojournalism. In 2000 and 2002 Kadir was both a jury member of the World Press Photo contest and on the supervisory board of the World Press Photo foundation. In 2004 he went back to Angola, Sierra Leone and the DR of Congo to portray the diamond industry, following the diamonds from the mines to the consumer markets in the western world. The exhibitions that resulted from this project were not only shown in Europe and the USA, but also in the mining areas of Congo, Angola and Sierra Leone. The photo book “Diamond Matters, the diamond industry” was published by Mets & Schilt (Holland), Dewi Lewis (UK) and Umbrage editions (USA) and awarded the prestigious Dutch Dick Scherpenzeel Prize for best reporting on the developing world. The project was also recognized with a World Press Photo Award.

2 pm    -    Cuny Janssen (english)

Cuny Janssen (NL) completed her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Utrecht followed by an internship with Thomas Struth in Düsseldorf, Germany. She won the second prize for the Prix de Rome for Photography in 2002 and had solo exhibitions at the Photographers' Gallery in London, Photography Museum Amsterdam (FOAM), Museum de Pont in Tilburg and Kunstverein Heilbronn. Over the years she has traveled around the world to picture children in places as diverse as Macedonia, Iran, South Africa, India, Japan and the United States. In these locations she has found young people who are strikingly individual but who share, no matter their circumstances, a perfection that suggests a common origin. She would like to remind the viewer that people are united by more than divides them. Her portraits are always accompanied by nature. Not afraid of given beauty Janssen photographs exclusively in color with an analogue 4 x 5 inch plate camera.

Her travels resulted in several photo books such as India (2002), Portrait/Landscape Macedonia (2004), Finding Thoughts (2005), There is Something in the Air (2007), Amami (2009), My Grandma Was a Turtle (2010), Yoshino (2013) and BLU (2015). For her latest book There Was a Child Went Forth (2017) she pictured children and nature in Amsterdam, the city in which she lives and works. Cuny Janssen is represented by andriesse~eyck galerie.
