Visiting Photo London? PhotoQ’s Book Club is very happy to invite you to an exclusive talk in Tate Modern with creative director Freek Kuin of Dutch master printing house robstolk. Kuin will give us an extensive look behind the special printing process of two new photobooks to be launched at Offprint London: Spring Tide by Willem van Zoetendaal and On The Road – Everglades by Bert Teunissen.
Participants may enjoy breakfast and other bites and drinks, while Freek Kuin – one of the best printing experts in the Netherlands – will share his experiences during the making of these two books.
Springtide is a catalogue for an exhibition opening on May 20 in the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam. Curated by designer/publisher Willem van Zoetendaal, showing images from the huge collection of the museum, with unexpected links and parallels between past and present.
On The Road – Everglades shows a road trip by Bert Teunissen, images shot from behind the steering wheel, analogue, and printed on out-of-date paper, thus creating unique photos. Published by Fw:Books.
Freek Kuin will reveal how he manages to meet the demands of both critical and experienced artists. The Amsterdam printing company robstolk over the years created numerous art books by Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Claudia Sträter, Guggenheim NY, Juul Kraaijer, Charlotte Dumas, Erwin Olaf, Eddy van Wessel, Arno Nollen, Koos Breukel, Michiel Botman, KesselsKramer and many others.
