La Espera at the Nederlands Fotomuseum
From 2 October 2020, my new work La Espera will be on show at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam as part of the Somfy Photography Award. Including work done in Mexico over the last three years, the project focuses on the realities for migrants, refugees and deportees as they seek for shelter across Mexico. Realities forced upon by other countries’ economic situation and border policies.
"The Somfy Photography Award will showcase new work by the nine nominated photographers: Roderik Henderson (NL), Géraldine Jeanjean (NL), Stephan Keppel (NL), Matthieu Litt (BE), Antoinette Nausikaä (NL), Martine Stig (BE), Dustin Thierry (NL), Maarten Tromp (NL), and Jordi Ruiz Cirera (ES). On 23 October 2020, a jury of international experts consisting of Frits Gierstberg (chairman), Menno Kooistra (architect Elephant), Dana Lixenberg (photographer), Thomas Seelig (curator/head of the photo collection of Museum Folkwang in Essen, Germany) and Stephan Vanfleteren (photographer) will announce the first and second prize winners."
From the 2nd of October until the 6th of December at the Nederlands Fotomuseum, Wilhelminakade 332, 3072 AR Rotterdam
