This summer, the Atrium is all about beach photos from The Hague. The Atrium City Hall Foundation has approached the Hague (street) photographers Annette van Soest, Sandra Uittenboogaart and Giedo van der Zwan to show their best beach photos from The Hague from July 15 until August 9 in the Atrium of the Town Hall.
Annette van Soest (1976)
Annette van Soest is a journalist, presenter and photographer. Already at the age of 11 she is cast as a journalist, in her first and last musical.
In the recent years she has mainly presented on the radio, such as BNR. She has recently made podcasts. She also still writes. In addition, she acts as day chair and moderator during events. If she doesn't talk or write, she prefers to look through the lens of her camera. Her first group exhibition took place in the summer of 2018 in London. GUP Magazine, a platform and magazine for conceptual photography, selected her for "New 2019" as one of the best emerging Dutch photographers.
Sandra Uittenbogaart (1975)
Sandra Uittenbogaart lives in The Hague and combines a job as an editor with the government with a great passion for photography. She makes both free work and commissioned work. In 2018, she published the photo album "Scheveningen - Badplaats in beeld", which can be found in a large number of bookshops in The Hague and on bol.com. She draws her inspiration from work by other photographers, but also from paintings, music and literature. In 2017 she attended the vocational training of the Photo Academy in Amsterdam for a year. She is currently following a Autonomous Photography working group at Fotoschool Statief in Utrecht. Sandra has a blog on www.haagsepraatjes.nl, where she occasionally posts new photos and stories.
Giedo van der Zwan (1967)
Giedo van der Zwan grew up in Scheveningen. He has been photographing since his 12th birthday and has been doing street photography consciously for 2 years. He actually did that unconsciously before that. Last year he set up the Pier to Pier project for the theme year Feest aan Zee at De Pier in Scheveningen. With this project he wanted to show the contrasts of Scheveningen that he experienced when he grew up; the poor fishing village opposite the modern Scheveningen bathing culture.
