Jeroen Oerlemans

16 Dec 2017 - 4 Mar 2018
As one of the rare Dutch press photographers, Jeroen Oerlemans often worked in areas of crisis. He travelled to Afghanistan, Libya and Iraq on a regular basis. Whether they concerned wars, natural disasters, famines or the refugees crisis, the reports he made during his travels managed to give world problems a human face. At home with his family in Amsterdam, he primarily worked on commissioned portraits.

Oerlemans’ photographs are characterized by an enormous involvement with the situations he captured, a strong sense of aesthetics and a sharp eye for composition.

The exhibition was compiled by his wife Boes Hogewind and shows images that are at the heart of current affairs.
