Alexander Willemse

Aleksander Willemse

Aleksander Willemse (1968) graduated ‘cum laude’ from the Photo Academy Amsterdam in 2010. Since then he won and got nominated for several photo prices like TPAA 2010 and 2011, de Fotoprijs and PANL. His work is exhibited in several musea and on national and international photo festivals like Noorderlicht, GRID Amsterdam and Photo Festival Naarden.

The work of Aleksander has its origin in the advertising business, it was there where he was spreading the faith in the strength of a supermarket, the status of a car and the financial gain of a bank. For Aleksander the advertising maker is the Michelangelo of the 20th century, faith as the best marketed product in the history of mankind. His personal work ‘sells’ a different view at things in life. And it is all up to yourself wether you are open for it or not. Although it is not focused on hard sales, it is not less commercial. It does not necessarily provide a good feeling. The work is usually highly stylized and clean designed.

Cornelis Jaring

Cornelis Jaring

Cornelis Jaring was born on December 18, 1936 on one of the ‘islands’ of Amsterdam. Most well known is his photographie work on Provo* the Amsterdam hippie-movernent of the 1960s. But from an aesthetical and social perspective his pictures of the Amsterdam harbour are certainly more impressive. Jaring was and is a man of the street. When young he did all kinds of jobs in the harbour of Amsterdam, and assisted his father in his second~hand shop. It was in military service that Jaring first met photography. and although he is a deserving painter too, he never left photography again. He felt at home in the streets of Amsterdam, and photographed people at work, the red light district, the markets, the harbour. In 1962, the year of his first exposition, he ran into Robert Jasper Grootveld, who was to become one of the heroes of Dutch Provo. Jaring followed, covered and became famous with his photographs of the roaring sixties. His Provo-photographs are a sign of the time: dark, quick, moments of great anxiety and activity. His greatest involvement was with the movement’s more playful happenings: the Insect Sect, “the Kitch-Conservatory. His political feelings were never that strong, which made it rather unproblematie for him to sell his pictures of the politically loaded actions to whoever wanted to publish them. lt is for that reason that his work and the history of Dutch Provo gained international recognition, and have become almost inseparable. In the late sixties Jaring started to travel: to the Far East, Northern Africa, the Soviet Union and large parts of Europe. His photographs differ considerably from the work on Provo. Provo was his world, he literally was always close to his subject, whereas his travel-photographs are more distanced, more reflective, the people seem further, away. With the death of Provo, Jarings work has moved definitely in the direction of documentary photography, concentrated on his Amsterdam: life in different quarters of the city, the life and work of chinese populations of Amsterdam, Carnival in the Capital. Influential magazines like Life Time, Stern, and others all over the world have covered Jaring’s work. Since 1971 jaring teaches at the Enschede Academy of Art. In 1987 Christie’s Amsterdam held a sale, comprising 250 photographs of ‘the Amsterdam master photographer’. Jaring is still active as a photographer. Of late he has taken to picture more of the Amsterdam harbour, and of daily life in the quarter around his home. Notwithstanding the wide variety of subjects he “covered”, the travels he made, as a thread throughout his work stands his impressive and still increasing oeuvre on the Amsterdam harbour. It is in a way paradigmatic for his entire oeuvre as it is the ultimate social comment, the universal record of people and their life. It is timeless photography, of hard Work. It is encompassing in it’s aesthetic, its social and political message, and the hard, dark and clear quality of composition and content render this part of his oeuvre unforgettable. Bernie Pasveer.

Dave Ball

Dave Ball

In the summer of 1971, Dave Ball was one of 80 musicians who answered an ad in the British music weekly Melody Maker to replace the Procol Harum lead guitarist, Robin Trower. “When I got there, they were very tired. It was quite obvious they’d seen too many guitar players. We played some R&B, some blues-type rock’n’roll, and then we went through a couple of their songs,” Ball later said about his successful audition. “They said that I was the only guitarist who had ‘just played’ as opposed to ‘played along’.”

Issued the following year, the ambitious concert recording successfully merged progressive rock and classical music and became the band’s best-selling album. As well as an inspired rendition of “A Salty Dog” and the suite “In Held ‘Twas in I” – featuring some sterling work by Ball – it contained a superlative version of “Conquistador”, which charted internationally and reinvigorated the career of the group forever synonymous with the epochal Summer of Love single “A Whiter Shade of Pale”.

Ball enjoyed himself on tour with Procol, particularly in the US, but quit in September 1972 as they neared completion on their next studio album, Grand Hotel. “I left Procol because I was bored with it,” he told Melody Maker at the time. “There were only so many ideas I could put into that style.”

Ewout Huibers

Below Sea Level, The Netherlands in Photographs. This photographic journey takes the reader through a country where water is both a friend and an enemy at the same time. Almost one quarter of the country’s surface is made up of drained inland lakes and land reclaimed from the sea. In such a densely populated country, every piece of land is cherished. In Ewout Huibers’ stunning photographs, the ever-present water plays a natural leading role. Below Sea Level is a painstaking visual study of the land that the down-to-earth and industrious Dutch people have worked hard to create. And their work will never end.

The Netherlands is a small the country. And yet, it took Ewout 11,000 kilometres by car and over 500 kilometres by bike to cover the country. Kilometres well worth spent, if you ask us.

Amsterdam Canals

It is with pride that we announce Amsterdam, A Metropolitan Village, a book about the city we love, and a response to a decade-old question. At MENDO, in the very heart of Amsterdam, we have, since 2002, been asked the same question almost daily: “Do you have a good book about Amsterdam?” Invariably, the answer is: “Nothing that is up to the MENDO standard. This book is our answer. And that answer, from now on, is: “You bet!”

mendo_book_BELOW_SEA_LEVEL_press_images_co2 mendo_book_amsterdam_co

Initiated by MENDO, for a whole year, photographer Ewout Huibers, was given the freedom to wander through the city and capture what he thought was interesting. And the result is at least a tribute of great diversity. From the role of the water in the city to the parasols in the front yards. From an architectural point of reference to a cyclist in the snow. Familiar and surprising, like only Amsterdam can be.

Kevin Erskine

Kevin Erskine

Kevin Erskine was born in Sharpsburg Illinois on January 17, 1956. His family moved to Hoskins Nebraska (population 284) when he was 10. The rich landscape and life as a farmer’s son instilled in him a deep-rooted commitment to Nebraska, family, faith and hard work. At 12 years old Kevin witnesses his first big storm. On June 5, 1968 a category 4 tornado (max. Wind speeds 207-260 mph) passes the city centre. Inspired by the force of nature he takes up photography using his fathers’ camera. Having his first pickup truck at the age of 19, Erskine starts chasing storms. His passion for photography and respect for nature still motivates Erskine to capture super cells with his large format camera. “When it’s blowin’ I’m going”.

Linda van Boven

Linda van Boven

Born in Arnhem, The Netherlands, Linda Van Boven lives and works in Amsterdam. She studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan. She has participated in group exhibitions in Europe and the U.S. and has worked on several public projects in The Netherlands, Russia, and Italy. She presents a series of photographs of sequential images, charged with emotions. Rhythmic in content and structure, the images range from clay to actual figures. A dynamism and range of emotions are condensed in the clay figures cloaked by chiaroscuro: intensely pensive figures play or sit round a table, one isolated figure writhes in pain, other figures are engaged in vigorous conversation or arguments. In the works Van Boven emphasizes the interplay of psychological battles and social patterns in everyday life.

Paul Blanca

Paul Blanca

Paul Blanca (c.1958) is a Dutch art photographer who entered the artworld in the begining of the 1980s with his subversive shocking self-portraits. The self-taught Blanca came into touch with the artscene when he met Eva Veldhoen, the daughter of the well-known Dutch painter Aat Veldhoen (1934). The acquaintance with this artistic environment was a real eye-opener for Blanca and shortly after he started photographing, first in color with a small screen camera but very soon after shooting in B&W using a Hasselblad camera (6 X 6 cm).

In 1980 he met the acclaimed choreographer Hans van Manen (1932), who is a meritorious photographer himself and owned a photo studio. Besides their mutual interest in art photography, Van Manen also used Blanca in one of his dance choreographies called Pose in which Blanca performed as a kick-boxer, he was a practitioner of this full-contact sport from the age of 16, surrounded by ballerina’s. Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) who was a close friend of Van Manen was very impressed by Blanca’s self-portraits and later introduced him to New York’s high society (like Keith Haring, Willem de Kooning, Japser Johns, Grace Jones…etc.) stating ‘Paul Blanca is my only competitor’. The art collector Bill Katz says in Anthony Haden Guest’s True Colors – The Real Life of the Art World on Blanca: “…he reaches a kind of poetry few artists have”.

Most of Blanca’s self-portraits deal with strong emotions and violent themes like fear, sadness, pain, agression and sexuality exploring his inner demons. Diametrically against this harsh work, there are the sensitive and gentle pictures like the one called Mother and Son (Mapplethorpe’s favourite) depicting himself in a tender embrace with his mother, both fully naked, or the portrait holding his newborn son in the air called Father and Son. In 1986 Blanca worked on a book called Timing (edition of 1000) which featured the upcoming Dutch artists of the eighties and his photographs were accompanied by poems of Koos Dalstra (1950). For his touching series Par la Pluie des Femmes (1989) he asked his female models to think of their most traumatic experiences. In 1991 he produces the magnificent Sangre de Toro series (see the paragraph ‘Blood of the Bull’ below).

During this time Blanca also started as a research-journalist for the Amsterdam weekly, Nieuwe Revu and the newspaper Het Parool. He wrote about crack and again exploring his own boundaries he started to use it himself, resulting in an addiction. His article for Nieuwe Revu on weapons was the starting point of a downward spiral with him being a suspect in the assault on Rob Scholte in 1995 because of his “knowledge” of grenades. There was a long silence but in 2008 Blanca returned with a project called Mi Mattes photographing the gangmembers hanging around his studio.
