Hate the crowds and commercialization of Christmas [or of any religion, for that matter?] So do we! Instead, let's go visit Ruigoord instead and maybe we will find some unique high quality products. Ruigoord is an artist colony in the harbor area of Amsterdam West. Some people live there full time, others prefer to rent spaces there. This alternative X-mas market seems a great occasion to get to know Ruigoord and do some shopping -Ruigoord style.
Winter Wondermarket with 40 to 50 hand-picked stands with handmade art, food, fire, glühwine, music & lots of wonderful vibes..!
In this exhibition, we will see an overview of the works of Polish-American photographer David Seymour [masked]), better known as Chim. One of his first works, about night workers, was influenced by Brassaï’s Paris de Nuit (1932) and ‘Chim’ – began working as a freelance photographer. From 1934, his picture stories appeared regularly in Paris-Soir and Regards and met Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, with whom he co-founded Magnum Photos in 1947. Having spent three years in the US Army from 1942, Chim was no stranger to life at the forefront of conflict. His photographic works are a record of significant and often tumultuous moments in history, including the pre-war political protests in France, coverage of the Spanish Civil War, the emergence of the State of Israel and touching images taken of children in Europe affected by the aftermath of the Second World War, but also of Hollywood stars as Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman. Chim held the post of president of Magnum Photos and remained in this position until his death. The entrance is 15 euro or free with a Museum card.
