Kjeld's Work at Exhibition in the Netherlands

Saturday, December 16, 2006 Posted: 08:34 AM JST

The Dutch National Archive (Nationaal Archief) and the Kunsthal Rotterdam next year organize a unique exhibition about work of 17th century cartographer Johannes Vingboons. My photographic work will be part of this exhibition.

Three bound atlases containing 130 maps from the Vatican – the world’s largest collection of Vingboons’ maps – are to leave the papal library for the first time since 1689. Together with over 80 handmade maps, they offer a glimpse of the mercantile world during the Golden Age.

In association with World Press Photo, ten international photographers were asked to photograph the cities drawn by Vingboons. World Press Photo winner (2005) Michael Wolf captured Guangzhou (Canton), Gillian Laub New York and I shot Osaka.

The exhibition takes place 27 January – 15 April 2007 at the Kunsthal Rotterdam.

To accompany the exhibition, a book of the same name about Johannes Vingboons is to be published by Waanders Uitgevers, ISBN 10: 9040082928 / ISBN 13: 9789040082924, price € 22.50.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
