Une Petite Ville On Display

Finally here is the selection for Une Petite Ville exposition on display at TNLP Rozengracht 75 Amsterdam from Tuesday to Saturdays.

There are 9 fine art photography prints on display together with the mini art frame version and over 80 special edition accessories, I managed to make all this in one month, it required a pretty high level of organization and focus with a considering amount of isolation.

The preparation for this petite exposition was massive as I work by myself with my two hands, controlling also graphic design, promotion, marketing, quality control, making etc etc etc.  At the end I was on schedule and ready on time.

Display took hours as placing with care and attention this amount of pieces takes time but it is a very good feeling to know you give your best for your own project and business, I could do it a million more times.

Hope you have the chance to pass by the shop and see this work on display as well as the other artists, crafters and designers handmade creations. Stay well and have a wonderful time.

Exposition Une Petite Ville: Special Edition

Here the pieces ready for Une Petite Ville exposition with Amsterdam photography fine art and special edition accessories ready for installation and tomorrow December 2nd from 11 am ready to shine on the first day of exhibition until January 6th 2015 at The New Label Project, Rozengracht 75, Amsterdam. You can get there by tram 13 or 14 and enjoy not only the small selection of my Amsterdam photography  charms but also a big show of handmade goodies from crafters, designers and artists from all around the world that joined TNLP for a festival of creative options.

These Amsterdam Photography Charms are handmade by me in my Amsterdam West studio with a combination of techniques and materials using leak and nickel free antique bronze plated bases and the images are print in a plastic material that get a ceramic-like finish matte making the pieces quite special and unique but also strong and life resistant. Hope you have the chance to pass by and enjoy the shop as well as my exposition.
