    From 1 April until 21 August 2016, Paleis Het Loo will be showing the exhibition "Royal Photos by Vincent Mentzel", featuring some of the finest pictures of the Royal Family made by renowned Dutch photojournalist Vincent Mentzel. Throughout his 40-year career as photojournalist for the Dutch quality daily paper NRC Handelsblad, Mentzel was able to work in often close proximity to the family. His photographs are characterized by an informal, sometimes even frivolous, yet always respectful approach. Mentzel's work gives a striking time-line of the Netherlands and the life of the House of Orange under Queen Beatrix.

    2015: Curator of "Doubles" photography exhibition and book (work title)

    "Doubles" is based on the collection by American photographer Dan Budnik (Arizona, USA) of photographic doubles. The doubles tell the story of the unique and longstanding partnership of two photographic prints (from the same negative), of their individual AND shared history of over a 150 years. Comparing the doubles reveal real and imagined histories, therefore this project has the potential not only to be embedded in a history of early photographic practice and photo conservation, but to also speak to one's imagination and poetic aesthetics.
