Guided Tour Eva Gjaltema

Fries Museum, 19 Sept.

Eva Gjaltema, Dutch photographer from the main exhibition Land, will give a tour in the museum this Sunday. In the festival Noorderlicht is showing her work in progress called Famylje, in which Gjaltema wants to preserve her own family history. 

The family Eva Gjaltema come from the Westerkwartier, a rural area on the border of the provinces Groningen and Friesland, and for generations has been active in farming and raising livestock. In 2004 Gjaltema began to record the lives of her grandparents, in order to preserve her own family history, but also to capture a dying way of life. By using found photographs and other material, she combines the role of photographer with that of a collector, researcher, editor and curator.
