Exhibition ROSA SPIER HUIS te Laren



ROSA SPIER HUIS in Laren will open the exhibition ESTRANGED with the work of photographer Arjan Spannenburg on 5 February. This exhibition will show a series of images from the project ESTRANGED. He will also show a selection of works from his other series.


ESTRANGED shows LGBT+ young people who are all searching for their identity. They move in a society where they struggle to express themselves freely and to be themselves. Although the people portrayed stand out in the image, they are partially in the background. As in everyday life, they show part of themselves, but also keep a piece hidden. In the series, we see the vulnerable side of these young people coming together with their strength. With this photo series, photographer Arjan Spannenburg (Texel, 1978) wants to create awareness about the experiences of LGBT+ young people, in the hope of working together to create a society where everyone is allowed and able to be themselves.
