Johan van der Keuken's "Quatorze Juillet" at Foam in Amsterdam

Foam in Amsterdam organizes an exposition around Johan van der Keuken's (1938-2001) famous picture "Quatorze Juillet" taken in Paris on the National Holiday in 1958. The expositions shows next to the picture that has been selected by Johan van der Keuken, also a choice of the pictures that he discarded. This gives a rather narrative insight in that whole day. Additionally It reveals many aspects of how he worked and how he made his final selection. It is very interesting to see what an exposition on a photographer/director can achieve by zooming in on the work produced on a single day.

The exposition runs from September 24 till December 8, 2010.
