Photographer Bert Nienhuis made many memorable portraits of famous Dutch and international celebrities.
His versatility and social involvement have been reflected in numerous reports since the legendary Annexes of Vrij Nederland. The committed photographer captured the social changes in the Netherlands with innovative reports on unemployment, immigration and life in working-class neighbourhoods. His casual and open style, his original and effective stagings and his eye for detail make Bert Nienhuis a special portrait photographer. In the run-up to the retrospective exhibition.
