Due to changing global conditions, Sigurd KRANENDONK c/o ROCKENFELLER & GÖBELS (photographer) and Frank Visser (artist) decided to join forces and create a visionary world together. Travel was nearly impossible in this highly scaled-down world, which is why virtual travel became the only option. Memories of distant journeys that each went on separately served as their inspiration.
In a spacious warehouse, different sets were built to represent imaginary destinations. With varying lighting arrangements, the sets turned into sweltering cities, villages and hamlets. Clouds drifting across the sky, rain showers puring down and desert heat could almost be felt in this project, and were created by means of color and abstraction. Destinations without arrival, miles not traveled, fantasy destinations. Looking for unknown places, for untold stories in houses never before seen.
The works by Kranendonk & Visser are on display during FotoFestival Naarden 2021 at Bastion Oranje Building G. GoSee & Enjoy : fotofestivalnaarden.nl///Kranendonk
About - FotoFestival Naarden (FFN) is a biennial photo exhibition which has been presenting the current state of autonomous photography since 1989. The festival focuses not only on documentary photography, but also on photography that is true to the basic principles of beauty and artistry – in the broadest sense of the word. It is precisely at this intersection of documentary and artistic photography that we want to incite visitors to think and to change or develop their views on current affairs..
