Harm-Jan Boven - The northern landscape

The photographs by Harm-Jan Boven visualise an inner world, situated in vast, empty landscapes such as are found along the northern coast of Groningen, where the artist presently lives. Boven's background as a painter appears to be essential for his approach to photography. He paints with light, shows colour fields seen through a painter's eyes, and composes his photos with a high degree of abstraction.

Galerie de Vis (Harlingen) represents contemporary artists, chiefly from The Netherlands. The focus of their collection is the landscape. In 2008 they began a collaboration with the Van der Velde book store. On the upper floor of the book store, across from the Der Aa-kerk, Galerie de Vis shows a multifaceted art collection that fits with the wide selection of art books at Van der Velde.
