Hi, I'm Rutger, 26 years old Amsterdam lover with a high interest in photography and music! Want to know more about us (or me) send an email to! YEW!

Amsterdam’s photography museum Foam is organizing the photo exhibition Art & Connection in collaboration with the usual unusual company &samhoud. The central theme of this exhibition, Connection, is linked to &samhoud’s higher goal: “Together we build a brighter future. We achieve breakthroughs by inspiring and connecting people”, and I believe in that! I think that the exhibition succeeds in showing us the real importance of connecting people. When you connect and inspire people, beautiful things may evolve, like we try to do here at Overdose ;-).

The photo exhibition Art & Connection exhibits photos by four young photographers: Olivia Bee, Melanie Vogel, Sibylle Fendt and Maziar Moradi. I think it’s a good thing that these young photographers are getting represented in this exhibition, as connection is a theme that starts when you are born and it helps form your values and friendships. So, let each photographer challenge you with their own style and take on the concept of connection.

My favourite out of the four is Maziar Moradi, with his series Ich werde Deutsch. As an Iranian that lives in Germany, he portraits other young people who had to leave their homeland to build up a new life in a Western country. His photos look like movie scenes where I could feel the peoples connection with their homeland and their psychological fight against all the changes they are undergoing.

In cooperation with Amsterdam’s photography museum Foam, &samhoud exhibits the photo’s in their ‘House of connection’ in the far-far-eastern suburb of Amsterdam, Utrecht (they got a bit lost). The photo exhibition is freely accessible on every Friday from the 18th of November until the 24th of December. Take a look and get inspired and connected. YEW!!
