Parnas

Three teachers, three continents

Frouke Feijen, Denis Markic, Elske Riemersma

Photography instructors at Parnas photographed on three continents.

In 2010 Frouke Feijen photographed in Malaysia, a country with a great variety in culture and nature, colourful and full of contrasts, with modern urban life next to the villages of the original inhabitants in the jungle.
Denis Markic photographed in Prague late in 2009. He is interested in European cultures, and particularly old architecture. For the photos he makes use of the light which suits his subjects best.

Early in 2010 Elske Riemersma photographed in Chile. Twenty kilometres from the city of Pucon, beneath the fumes from the Villarrica volcano, lies Ruca Rayen, the 'house of flowers'. Here Margot, of Mapuche Indian ancestry, lives with her family.

Peepshow of absurd things

Photo workshop Parnas:

Willem Bokkes, Miranda de Hey, Cor Hoekstra, Sape Joustra, Afke van der Meulen, Sibylla Mous, Astrid Schoenmaker, Grietje Velink, Aly Veninga, Natasja van der Weide, Gretha Wijbenga

The members of the photography workshop sought out the boundary between reality and fantasy. They photographed ordinary objects in their own homes and with them created a mysterious living room.

Bring along some pocket change, because looking costs 20 cents!

Playful looking

Last season the members of the photography workshop worked with guest instructor Irene Cécile, known for her photos and website ‘If you look good, they're everywhre’. The students made playful, light-hearted and random photos and discovered how happy that can make you.
