Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam presents from 12 October until 23 November 2019 an exhibition of Dutch fine art photographer Saskia Boelsums. The gallery shows a selection of intriguing images reflecting the beauty of Dutch landscapes with imposing cloudy skies. Simultaneously Terra Publishing launches a new photo book. The first retrospective book of the visual artist features one hundred wonderful pictures.
The landscape images created by Saskia Boelsums all show their own strong signature: overwhelming and picturesque. In the images, she shows the essence of her experience, making the atmosphere of the photographed landscapes tangible to the viewer. Nature and the changing seasons are the greatest sources of inspiration.
The photographer feels a strong connection with the tradition of Dutch landscape painters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Willem Maris and Jacob van Ruisdael. Enchanted by the same landscapes, Saskia Boelsums contains all of her expansive horizons and wild landscapes within the rigorous formal boundaries of the pure and modern square.
Saskia Boelsums (Amstelveen, 1960) grew up in Iran and on Curaçao. Back in the Netherlands, she studied at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen and graduated in spatial and graphic design. Since 2013, she has focused entirely on landscape photography. Her autonomous work received international acclaim and has been exhibited in Amsterdam, Berlin, Hong Kong, London, Moscow and New York. The photographer was nominated for Dutch artist of the year 2020.
