City Cufflinks, the design brand renowned for capturing cityscapes in the form of covetable handcrafted sterling silver cufflinks, is proud to support Dutch photographer Marie-Jeanne van Hövell tot Westerflier, as she opens her first London exhibition. The Dutch Centre will be showcasing a series of the photographer’s timeless analogue black and white photos, from Tuesday 17th January.
Depicting wintry scenes along the Amsterdam canalside as well as soberly interior shots, each shot is taken on an analogue Hasselblad camera without flashlight, beautifully lit instead using natural light. The photo series sits alongside a display of City Cufflinks’ miniature sculptures of world cities – London and Amsterdam – designed by Dutch designer Seroj.
An ode to the Dutch city, the exhibition serves to link art photography, contemporary design and architecture through the work of two distinct artists.
Dutch Ambassador Simon Smits will open the exhibition at 7pm on Tuesday 17th January.
Admission is free. No RSVP required.
