Two stunning exhibitions on European nature: I'm extremely curious! Monumental landscapes, old glass plates, turning pages with little white gloves on: this promises to be an experience.
Selected by: Basje Boer, Film ambassador

There are two outstanding exhibitions on in Huis Marseille, where past and present meet in photographs of nature in Europe: Regarding Nature by Chrystel Lebas and After Baldus: Travels in a Wounded Landscape by Theo Baart & Cary Markerink.

Chrystel Lebas | Regarding Nature
French photographer Chrystel Lebas, known for her monumental landscape photographs, was asked by the Natural History Museum London to make new work in response to a collective of glass negatives dating from early 20th century, made by British botanist and ecologist Edward James Salisbury. The result, a photo series shot in Scotland, Norfolk and Devon, uniquely brings past and present, as well as art and science together. Lebas also shot a photo series on Ameland especially for this exhibition.

Theo Baart & Cary Markerink | After Baldus: Travels in a Wounded Landscape
Inspired by the photo book Le Chemin de Fer du Nord by 19th-century photographer Édouard Baldus, photography duo Theo Baart and Cary Markerink sharpened their focus on the cultural landscape of North France. As a result of industrialisation, globalisation, war and urbanisation, this region has changed dramatically in recent years. Baart and Markerink captured these changes. The result is an album consisting of fifty original photographs. The book will be on display during this exhibition.

Photo exhibitions during the darker days
In the period around Christmas and New Year’s Eve (between 26 December and 8 January), we have three photo exhibitions on offer for members. Regarding Nature by Chrystal Lebas, After Baldus: Travels in a Wounded Landscape by Theo Baart & Cary Markerink in Huis Marseille and Boundaries by Harley Weir in Foam. As both exhibition spaces are located on the Keizersgracht, we encourage everyone to visit both locations.

Please note: Huis Marseille is closed on New Year’s Day.
