Unseen Photo Fair & Festival

Not only our Strawberry Earth Fair is curated by nature. The Unseen Photo Fair & Festival brings us a bunch of artists tackling environmental and social issues too this year. Today we'll introduce you to two artists: Brazilian Caio Reisewitz and the Dutch Linelle Deunk.

Unseen Photo Fair & Festival
18 - 20 September 2015
Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam

Caio Reisewitz
The works of Reisewitz (1967) capture the relentless expansion of the urban world into rich natural environments. We see nature being devoured by urban sprawl. To preserve this wild landscape, Caio started photographing the extremities of Brazil's transitional landscape.

Linelle Deunk
Deunk (1967) is exploring a single Earth, yet with so many different worlds depending on where you stand. Her timeless black and white photographs draw us into the lives of others and bring attention to social issues, like the lack of basic human needs in Ugunda.

About Unseen
Unseen is the international photography fair and festival focused on new photography. With 54 galleries, the fair highlights the most recent developments in contemporary photography. Expect unseen (doh) work by established artists and fresh talent. New this year is the Unseen Festival, a 10-day celebration of photography in Amsterdam's city centre. From 18 - 27 September, Unseen brings together many of the city's galleries, artists and initiatives using photography in ways that surely will knock you off your feet.
