Expo in Werkplaats: De Canta Club by Marjolein van der Klaauw

Art & Cult

We have a new photo exposition at our ground floor. This time photographer Marjolein van der Klaauw exhibits a part of her series ‘De Canta Club’, in which a wide variety of Canta owners are portrayed with their vehicles.

How did you come up with the idea to make a series about Canta owners?

I am a documentary photographer and have always been fascinated by Amsterdam and the daily things that are seen as normal for many. The Canta is something that’s part of the typical Dutch street scene. Every time I saw one driving or parked on the sidewalk, I wondered who these Canta drivers are. Out of this interest and the fact that the old Canta models are not being made anymore, I wanted to capture the owners with their vehicles, knowing that these street scenes might not be forever.

How do you find the Canta owners? 

There are many ways to find them. I scout them on the street, sometimes I knock on someone’s door when I see a Canta standing in front of a house. Canta drivers also refer me to one another. Or I call car garages and ask for some contacts. I meet so many nice and interesting people while making this series of portraits. Everyone has their own story, everyone is unique.

Canta 2

Is the series now complete or will you continue?

It is a long-term project, so it’s not complete yet. I hope to receive funding next year to publish a book about it.

You can visit the expo in Werkplaats until the end of March. Entrance is free.
