ADE and Volkshotel bring you The Performance, a photography exhibition by Nick Helderman Photography and Isolde Woudstra Photography. The last couple of years these two photographers have shot renowned artists in everyday settings resulting in images that float between staged portraits and documentary photos. Both Nick and Isolde are known for their images that shine a sincere light on those who create magic. Drop by and explore a selection of their work during ADE Playground.
◈ Nick Helderman
Known for his dynamic and often intimate images, Nick Helderman (Friesland, 1987) mostly portrays musicians and dj’s. He already had the pleasure to shoot great artists and creatives like Olaf Boswijk (Trouw Amsterdam), Caribou, Thomas Azier, Palmbomen, Tom Trago and many more. He’s there when you least expect him to be, crawls under the skin of the subject, creating interesting, unpolished and out of the ordinary photos. Helderman’s work has been featured by XLR8R, Pitchfork, Glamcult, The Guardian, Self-Titled Magazine, Le Guess Who? and Vice – just to name a few.
◈ Isolde Woudstra
Name a few cool acts around and it’s likely they’ve been shot by Isolde Woudstra (Friesland, 1982). From Austra to Lemontrip, Com Truise and Grimes to TR/ST, they’ve all stood in front of her camera. Woudstra gained fame with her particular well composed and clean images that never seem to bore. Her strong focus on music, fashion and portrait photography didn’t go by unnoticed and her photos were featured in renowned magazines like Subbacultcha, I-D, Mixmag, Esquire & Volkskrant Magazine.
