Peter van Beek, documentary and portrait photogrpaher.

Centuries ago dark-skinned nomads, tin makers, musicians and storytellers came from Punjab and Rajastan to the West. Their history is vague and full of mystery. Surprisingly, in 2012 it still is. The Roma, commonly known as gypsies, live their lives in remarkable ways. One has a horse, the other a Hummer. Loved by few, discriminated by many.


Peter van Beek was photographing Balkan psychiatric institutions when thousands of Kosovo refugees settled down in Skopje, capitol of Macedonia, for a while. Besides psychiatry and refugees Peter started capturing life of the Roma as well. He became intrigued by these passionate and colourful people yet largest and most hated minority in Europe.

For 10 years now Peter travels across Europe. Eating and sleeping, dancing and sometimes fighting with Roma.

By photographing his adventures he shows us the inspiring life of coppersmiths, witches, bear tamers, nomads and storytellers


Mrs Robinson says:

I had a WOW moment when I saw the work of Peter : honest and colourful portraits which make you wonder about life, people and places. Peter himself doubted the fact that his work would be appropriate for Bloesem. Yes, it may be a wake up call to show these non-styled and unpolished sceneries but by being so they are enormously attractive. Because this time the beauty is not in the garments, objects or models, but in the pride of these people.

Anja Niemi, Art photographer

Born in Norway in 1976 and educated at London College of Printing and Parsons School of Design in Paris and New York.

Anja Niemi's new series of photographs Do Not Disturb, exhibited for the first time, continue the artist’s relationships with interiors. This time in hotel rooms.

Her new series of photographs Do Not Disturb, exhibited for the first time, continue the artist’s relationships with interiors. This time in hotel rooms.

She packs a suitcase containing none of here personal belongings, only unfamiliar clothes and accessories, and checks into a hotel.  With the private space of the hotel room and hiding behind someone else's clothes she feels the familiar freedom from her past, to play out all the different characters she no longer wants to be.

Anja Niemi : Do Not Disturb from 27 March – 21 April at The little black gallery, London


Mrs Robinson says:

After Irene did a call for photography entries, last year, reactions poured in. And when I had a first look at them I was immediately captivated by these images from Anja.  The entire series  are  so very strong in idea and execution which makes it a very balanced story. It radiates a feeling of timelessness without loosing its sophisticated, almost fashionable character.

Winter Landscape

Jennifer Squires Ross, Modern Fine Art Photographer

"I began this series as part of a therapeutic exercise that I'd given myself: find beauty in winter. Winter and I don't get along, the cold gets in me and doesn't want to leave, the shortened daylight hours make me tired, and the isolation makes me lonely. By observing nature throughout these frozen months I saw more than just dormant trees and endless shovelling. I saw a time to slow down, reflect on where I've been, contemplate who I am, and meditate on what's to come. Winter is for looking inwards, calming the mind, body, and soul. I found more than just beauty during the snowy season; I found rejuvenation, rest, and reflection."


Mrs Robinson says:

These images together with this introspective note by Jennifer is a beautiful start the first week of our new blog. It perfectly summarizes what we want to share with you : what does a picture mean to you ? Personally I see it as a game of give and take between the artist and the viewer. The Winterscapes pictures are simple but meaningful and have a strong graphic and illustrative character .
