When we talk about the Dutch photographic heritage and Dutch photography, which photography and which makers are we talking about? And who is not being talked about? Whose heritage is given the right to exist and get acknowledged in the museum and precisely whose heritage is not seen or acknowledged? Imagination goes beyond showing work about representation.
The 23 image makers are given a stage in Imagination to show their relationship to the world in their own way. The works shown in the accompanying exhibition in the Dutch Photomuseum and the book (Dutch and English editions) have been selected in the first place on the basis of quality, distinction and the strength of the makers who create their own world in their work. Photographers with their own signature, who question the world to convey the visual story of representation.
