Dutch masters of light: Hendrik Kerstens and Erwin Olaf

22 October 2016 to 4 December 2016

This exhibition features work by the internationally acclaimed Dutch photographers, Hendrik Kerstens and Erwin Olaf. Inspired by the moody manipulation of light and shadow that characterises the paintings of Dutch masters such as Rembrandt and Vermeer, these photographers create emotionally charged portraits that draw attention to the liminal nature of contemporary life.

Dutch masters of light: Hendrik Kerstens and Erwin Olaf is part of a series of events that mark the 400th anniversary of the first Dutch contact with Western Australia. On 25 October 1616, Dirk Hartog made landfall with his ship the Eendracht at Dirk Hartog Island, in the Shark Bay area.
