I have recently been invited to submit a portfolio to a small group of (street) photographers based in Rotterdam, that showcase street scenes in Rotterdam and exhibit 4 times per year. I had to produce 10 b/w photos of Rotterdam. This was one of the 10 taken on yes you guessed it, De Blaak. A smoker steps outside his office for a quick smoke.
Although this wasn't taken with the them in mind, I think it belongs - glass door, night door, and revolving door.
And btw they accepted me, I am in the group, now for my first exhibition :)
Wow - congratulations. I am surprised it is your first exhibition? About time :-) By the way when will this be? Very good friends of mine spend their summer holidays in the Rotterdam area. He is an excellent photographer and very interested in what others do. They would certainly be interested to visit the exhibiton???
It's a very good b/w that lives from this "sneaking away from the office for a short cigarette break"-moment. He looks pretty much alone, it seems that all have quit the bad habit - haha.
Everlasting (2019/05/31 16:17:51): I am not sure when and where the first exhibition will be, but it will not be until after the summer probably October or November. the photos first have to be selected. When are you friends coming and where do they stay? I may have some tips for them.
Congratulations. It is a honor to be part of a juried exhibit! I can see why this image was chosen. I spent a week in Rotterdam in 2007 and this image really feels like the city. It also fits the TOM well. Gonna be a tough month for choices
