Soap Bubbles


 How great it is, just wandering through city streets. And then there are big soap bubbles to be seen. And a kid who is just missing the catch. Soap bubbles are uncatchable. Berlin, September 2021. Photo also to be seen at https://www.instagram.com/dupho_gkf/, the Instagram account of a dutch photographers board. Go there to see exiting work of many colleagues.

Walking in the rain


 Photo from my show "Shop window in the Shop window". 

Invitation!!

Meet & Greet the photographer! Friday, April 8 from 4 to 6 pm! Welcome!

Exhibition!!

Photos!!

 “Shop window in the Shop window”

When: March 17, 2022 to April 25, 2022.

Where: Raamgalerie Filmstudio Franjo, 2-e van der Helststraat 41, 1073 AH Amsterdam

Open: Daily, 9am to 11pm.

Fashion stores, jewelers, bakers, McDonalds, travel agencies, garages, museums, galleries, souvenir shops, department stores, hotels and much more. Photographer Jaap Bijsterbosch walks by and always looks at the shop window through the viewfinder of his camera. He sometimes registers the content or message of the shop window, but also often the interplay between the shop window and the environment in which the shop window is located. Through the single lens of the camera, the street scene reflected in the shop window can be combined with the contents of the shop window to create alienating images, often with a poetic or surreal slant. Bijsterbosch also has no objection whatsoever to giving his own reflection in the window pane an important role as a (determining) element.

-Castle in Diemen-

(Often when I go out into my hometown Diemen, the somewhat sleepy suburb of Big City Amsterdam, I take my camera with me. I try to capture accidental beauty and sometimes unplanned alienation of the banal aspects of the everyday scenery. I started to do this from 2004, the year we came to live here, at first in black and white, from 2006 in color.)
