The photo exhibition “Kosmos” by Joris Jansen, winner of the 2009 Steenbergen Stipendium, is held at Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam (Foam), showing until March 23rd.
In Kosmos, Jansen approaches an analogue photo from an encyclopaedic perspective. The result is a site-specific work for the Foam library on the third floor, which doubles as an exhibition gallery.
Jansen describes and photographs the picture in microscopic detail: from the literal image in the photo, to the physical elements with which it is made.
