Overview participating exhibitions
Stretching the 'decisive moment' into a decisive minute: that's what Reinier Gerritsen has in mind with his experimental street photography. He makes a series of images of people in the city in rapid succession, one after another, like frames in a film. In this way he reveals more than jut one photo can: the direction they are looking, posture, isolation and love, the choreography of the group. In the computer he assembles one universal and cinematic photo from all these images.
Reinier Gerritsen (Netherlands, 1950) made his name as a street photographer with his series The Europeans, for which he photographed a busy pedestrian crossing in each European capital city: group portraits which together made up a portrait of Europe. His book Wall Street Stop sketches a picture of the New York subway – and shortly he will be 'going underground' in Shanghai, too. Gerritsen lives and works in Amsterdam.
