In September this year, I visited the Unseen Amsterdam for the second time. A lot of great photography, good presentations, a big book fair, and of course a lot of people in the beautiful weather in Amsterdam.
New this year (at least I did not see it last year), was the Photo Pleasure Palace, by Thomas Maileander and Erik Kessels. They had taken a humorous look at photography, and some examples shown below.
The toilet obscura
A camera obscura, with a toilet. Which was not working, but the idea was fun. From there you could watch the Trump Jump (see below).
The smash gallery
The audience could buy wooden blocks, and throw at a wall with photos. If you hit a photo, it was wrapped for you, and you got to take it home.
The Jump Trump gave you a chance to jump on Trump. I guess you didn’t even know you wanted to do this, right 🙂
