Opening Reception & Artist Salon
Thursday, April 20 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
at THE QUIN
‘Strength Africa’ by award-winning photographer Anne Barlinckhoff journeys through West Africa with remarkable detail. Inspired by love and loss, the oversized color images are intimate portraits that explore the beauty of the quotidian experience—demonstrating the confidence of the artist’s subjects and the profound nuance that has become a hallmark of Barlinckhoff’s work.
Barlinckhoff has been published in Vogue Italia, Dazed & Confused, Nowness, and Blink Magazine among others, and has exhibited in the USA, South Africa, Australia and across Europe. Born in 1989, Anne Barlinckhoff graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts, and lives and works in both Europe and Africa. In describing Barlinckhoff’s work from West Africa, Vogue Italia wrote that, “This series of work expresses openness and intimacy as much as physical beauty,” noting that the series offers “images of high visual and narrative contrast, as well as a newfound vulnerability.”
