#Slide – 80 days of summer – Gent

I’m so proud that Bending The Frame will be presenting a slide compilation evening at the 80 Days of Summer photo festival in Gent.

With a full program of slides by Sohrab Hura, Pieter ten Hoopen, Sébastien van Malleghem and Anton Coene we will close off the festival with a bang.

Some of Belgians finest musicians like Rudy Trouvé, Aldo Stuyf, Elko Blijweert, Hannes d’Hoine, Sjoerd Bruil, and more will be playing live and/or have created a unique soundscape with the pieces created by the photographers.
Photography will literally become performance and will blow your minds away.

Sohrab Hura’s slide was the  highlight at the Peckham 24 festival during the London Photo Fair for the folks of the British Journal of Photography, Sean O’Hagan of the Guardian as well as the director of the Photographers Gallery. No more reference needed right? 🙂

Don’t miss this incredible, exciting and enthralling night where photography meets music. Welcome!

A while ago I photographed during the beginning rehearsals of a new play by Luk Perceval which will premiere in March in Hamburg and will tell a haunting story about the first world war. More soon on his website and I recommend everyone that can, to go see it.

Thank you everyone for coming to the first exhibition and projection of my work on Afghanistan. The circus like arena in Theater Tinnenpot was filled with people interested in Afghanistan and the problems the women face there. Thank you Soetkin and everyone at Vrede vzw for giving me the opportunity to show my work there.

I’m so excited about the arrival of the postcards that I made for the exhibit next week in Gent. They look amazing and I really couldn’t be happier with the result.

You can still come and join me for the exhibit/projection and at the same time listen to a very interesting debate on the position and lives of women in Afghanistan in Theater Tinnenpot in Gent. And you’ll receive the card as a little present on top of that. Hope to see and meet you there

Theater Tinnepot

Due to great interest in the debate and exhibition on Women in Afghanistan on the 24th of April, we had to change locations and move to a bigger venue.

The whole thing will now take place in the ‘Tinnepot theater’ in Gent, not that far from the original location. You can still attend and reserve your spot to listen to a very interesting debate on women in Afghanistan with Malalai Joya, Olia Moradi and Razia Arefi. And on top of that of course a few of my images from Afghanistan exhibited for the first time in Belgium.

So I hope to see you there 🙂

Being a woman in Afghanistan

flyer_recto (1)

This coming 24th of April, my work will be exhibited during the ‘Being a woman in Afghanistan’ conference at the Vredeshuis in Gent.

I’m very much looking forward to hearing the Afghan guests speak about their country and what it’s like to be a woman there. As a Western woman it’s very different traveling in a country like Afghanistan. No matter what happens or what you see, you know that you can get out of the country whenever you want and you can go back home where things are safe and secure.

For a woman like Malalai Joya for instance that is something else… She is a very outspoken former parliamentarian who defied the system and spoke out against the warlords and war criminals within politics. In doing so, she got suspended and lost her job in parliament, had to go into hiding and still lives under constant threat.

I hope to see some of you there. It promises to be a very interesting evening and the first time some of my images from Afghanistan will be exhibited.
