Photography and Architecture – Edwin Zwakman

set PylonSignup at the bottom of this page.

For the fourth and last afternoon in the series of Photography and Architecture, lectures and workshops, Argus presents Edwin Zwakman.

Zwakman is mainly a photographic artist who has finished his education at the Willem De Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, along with being educated at the Städelschule, Frankfurt/M and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.

In his (signature) work he creates ultra realistic images with the use of the surreal, his work is a continuation of the every day flow of information that comes to us distorted and in fact in many cases a lie.
Zwakman has several publications on his name; Fake But Accurate (2008) and amongst others the book ZwakmanBenthemCrouwel (2009) in which he uses his working methods on models of Benthem Crouwel buildings in Madurodam.
Zwakman has presented his work in numerous exhibitions, solo as well as in group form.
Along with all this work he has realised permanent works in public spaces as ‘Het Gat’ in Heereveen (2005) and ‘Treehugger’ in Shanghai (2010).

During the lecture Zwakman will go into his working methods, especially on the photography of miniature models and how his work looks so life-like/real. During the workshop this working method will be put to the test in a masterclass-like fashion.
For the workshop we would like participants to take a model of their current project with them, contributing to the process of the participants projects, a camera and preferably a tripod.
