Minerva, the academy for the visual arts in Groningen, celebrates her 200th anniversary this month. On this occasion the USVA Noorderlicht Photogallery presents recent work by artists that graduated from the academy during the past twelve years.
Although Minerva does not provide a specific photography direction, many students have gained a love for the medium. During their studies they chose to emphasize photography, and in their later professional practice this was naturally continued. One studied twelve years ago and is now a wellknown fashion photographer in Milan, another graduated only last year. From the one to the other and inbetween; this exhibition provides a varied image of the photographers that started off at Minerva.
