Yesterday we had the most fantastic tour at the Westfries Museum in Hoorn, NL, by the famous photographic artist Hans Withoos (1962) himself. It is such a pleasure to meet the artist and hear about his motives and drive. This adds a whole new dimension to the exhibition.
In the project Withoos meets Withoos Hans meets his great-great-grandfather, the famous painter Matthias Withoos (1627). A colourful, unique and symbolic exhibition in which Hans uses the paintings of Matthias as a part of his own special photographic work.
