Hans van der Kamp, internationally respected photographer who is known for his unique style of capturing extreme sexuality through portraiture will exhibit his recent works at The Lightroom Gallery, Hasselt, Belgium on February 16th.
Van der Kamp is well-known internationally and his longest running exhibit continues in the first Museum For Erotic Art in Moscow located on the Novy Arbat close to the Kremlin.
His works have been called provocative, perverse, and pornographic by many Russians, yet his exhibits continue to draw record crowds.
The exhibit, “Back and Forth” illustrates the passion that the photographer captures through his lens. Trusting subjects display known and unique kinks wearing their finest array and appear to have fun doing it. This is a wild photographic journey that is not to be missed.
Van der Kamp’s exhibit “Back and Forth” will kick off a collaborative effort with curator Kymara Lonergan, recent co-owner of van der Kamp’s highly regarded Amsterdam Museum of Erotic Art and owner of The Kymara Gallery, Kennebunkport, Maine. The show will be moving to New York City to be part of the “XXX” group show that features seven of the world’s most highly regarded photographers. It will take place in The Leslie/Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art Old Basement Gallery, SOHO, NYC, and Kennebunkport, Maine in the Summer. An opening celebration for “Back and Forth” will take place on February 16th at 15:00 and will run until March 16th.
