Aperture and the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York are proud to present The Dutch Photobook, a presentation and reception with Frits Gierstberg. Join Frits Gierstberg, curator of the Netherlands Photomuseum and co-author of The Dutch Photobook, who will discuss the ideas and themes behind the book, including the historically strong collaborations between graphic designers and Dutch photographers. Learn why certain books were included and others were left out. Frits will be joined by special guests Jacqueline Hassink and Dana Lixenberg, whose work is represented in the book. Following the talk, guests will enjoy a reception and special viewing of a selection of Dutch photobooks. Those in attendance will also receive a complimentary copy of The PhotoBook Review. This event is supported by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York. The Dutch Photobook is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Dutch Photobook can be ordered at Aperture here.
