Gitterman Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of black and white photographs by Machiel Botman. The exhibition will open on Wednesday, December 14th and continue through, February 18th.
This exhibition of Machiel Botman’s black and white photographs from the past ten years is concurrent with the release of his third monograph, One Tree (Nazraeli Press, 2011). A key figure in Dutch photography, Botman has always photographed as a way to understand life. He is not restrained by photographic conventions; rather, Botman utilizes a variety of exposures, depths of field and focal distances, resulting in a style that is uniquely his own. His books are equally singular. They are autobiographical and chronicle the stages in his life, but they do not follow a linear narrative.
