The fact that Eric is born in 1961, is not the reason he named his company e61 Photography. In 1961 the Italian firm Faema launched a new type off espresso machine, naming it e61. Eric has a profound love for good coffee. In 2003 Eric almost bought a refurbished e61 espresso machine. Almost, the machine went to a higher bidder. Instead Eric named his photo studio “e61″ adding Photography later.
Friso Boven (1986) is a pure visual thinker. Thoughts, concepts and stories arise entirely in forms and images, which he captures and expresses in various widely diverse photographic styles.
Although born in Groningen, Friso was raised in Kano, Manchester, Seoul and New Delhi, driving him to further develop his skills rapidly. Consequently, he learned to express himself by drawing and later through photography. Friso is one of the rare self-taught photographers whose work has been acquired by both the Caldic Collection as the AkzoNobel Art Foundation.
Boven’s work covers a wide variety of genres, themes and styles. From fashion photography to autonomous art, from improvised street photography to staged studio sessions. His work is known for his highly original use of perspective, emotional engagement and an inexhaustible interest in people. Each of his images serve as an invitation to look at the world from another angle and always allow the possibility to shed a different light on the subject.
This outsider not only brings up strong emotions with himself, but also with others: Paul Blanca. The self-taught photographer, born as Paul Vlaswinkel in 1958 in Amsterdam, makes his way through current commerce with his black and white and sometimes color photography. The ‘’tragic’’ is the guiding principle in his large format negatives: he believes in that one expression in that particular moment.
Tijdens de opleiding aan de Rijksacademie in Amsterdam ontmoette Karel Appel in de jaren 1940-1943 Corneille. Ze besloten om in 1946 met elkaar naar Luik te af te reizen en daar in 1947 te exposeren. Ook maakte zij een reis naar Parijs en bij terugkeer maakten ze kennis met Constant. In 1948 exposeerden zij alle drie samen in Amsterdam.
Tom Wesselmann is considered one of the major artists of New York Pop art, along with Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. Best known for his 1960s series “Great American nude,” which featured flat figures in an intense palette of red, white, blue, and other patriotic colors, Wesselmann, in an effort to reject Abstract Expressionism, made collages and assemblages that incorporated everyday objects and advertising ephemera.
Artist Walasse Ting, through various wanderings, ended up in Paris in 1952, where he encountered Cobra painters such as Karel Appel and Asger Jorn.
