Unseen Photo Fair 2015 - Review

13 October 2015
Unseen Photo Fair took place in Amsterdam this September; a photography festival celebrating innovative and cutting edge works by both established names and emerging talents in contemporary photography. This is their fourth successful year with a staggering 16,000 visitors in the first weekend alone.

Housed in a renovated industrial gas warehouse Unseen featured 54 international galleries and 4 collectives.  Showing photographic prints, mixed media installations, video art, neon lights, heat formed UV prints, sculpture and much more, a diverse and provocative selection of work presents a snapshot of many new movements in artistic photography.

The event never fails to impress with artists and galleries encouraged to show ‘premieres’ of completely new work.  Artists working with Metro such as Stuart Whipps (Division of Labour & Belfast Exposed) and Felicity Hammond (South Kiosk Mt. Figure), showed new works created specifically for the fair.  Many more familiar Metro clients such as Darren Harvey-Regan (The Ravestijn Gallery), Noemie Goudall (Edel Assanti) and Edmund Clark (Parrotta Contemporary) were represented too.

The UK photographic scene was there in force with exhibiting galleries such as Flowers, Edel Assanti, The Photographers' Gallery, South Kiosk, Webber Gallery Space, Pi Artworks, Division of Labour and Belfast Exposed, as well as the ‘Wandering Bears Collective.

We met with many of the artists and galleries to discuss future Photo fairs such as Photo London and the London Art Fair in 2016 for which we’re looking forward to providing exhibition services over the coming months. We were also delighted to catch up with artist and former Metro Imaging colleague Petra Stenvall and hear about her photographic publication Tjejland .

It’s fantastic to see the artistic freedom and ingenuity that’s nurtured at Unseen. According to many of the gallerists the tendency is to show younger artists with the benefit of accessible pricing of the work, this attracts younger private collectors and in turn gives the entire show a more democratic and open feel.

The 2015 edition also included an extended photography festival which ran until the 27th of September, stretching out into the city centre.

In Metro’s opinion stand out artists of the fair would be the work of Beni Bischof  (Galerie Nicola von senger) and Nico Krijno (The Ravestijn).
