Arjen Zwart Photographer
Beyoğlu - Istanbul
Arjen Zwart (1957, Alkmaar) is an independent photographer. Zwart has lived in Istanbul since 2008, where he mainly works on his own projects. Aside from this he works as a freelance photographer for various newspapers and magazines and holds workshops in street photography. The artist is also the co-creator of ‘Dog Food Magazine;’ a magazine based on the philosophy of photographer’s cynicism. In the 1990s he photographed the subculture in a maritime village landscape near his home in Egmond aan Zee. This work was exhibited in 1998 in the Museum of Egmond. A selection from the series became part of a traveling photo exhibition, which toured under the banner of the “European Cultural Village of Europe” since 1999. With the financial support of the Linde Foundation and the Working Group Arts and Culture of Egmond, he published his first book in 1999 about the maritime village landscape titled ‘Achter de eerste Paal.’ His work is shown in the Arts Centre Bergen and KunstEyssen (Alkmaar). In Turkey, he has exhibited in Karşı Sanat Gallery (Istanbul 2006), Studio 9 Istanbul (2012), Blok Art Space ( Istanbul 2017), Bursa International Photo Festival (2012), and International Photo Festival in Istanbul (2014), as well as other art venues.
