Opening: Gertjan Bartelsman - Beyond Photojournalism

  • RASCO Art Gallery 1935 East Passyunk Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19148 United States (map)


On view will be select works from four capsule collections: “Paisajes,” “Retratos,” “Urbes,” “Abstractors,” and pieces from “Reflejos de una Metropoli.” Opposites attract in Bartleman's body of work, rural and urban landscapes are equally engaging in their abstract and figurative compositions as are the individuals as portraiture or in motion. Oscar Villami will be available to interview. Gertjan Bartelsman initiated his career as a photographer during the 1970’s working at different advertising agencies as a graphic and journalist reporter for important Colombian magazines including Cromos. Parallel to his commercial work Bartelsman pursued his artistic career by collaborating as a still photographer in Colombian films and participating in exhibitions around the world including biennales in Venice, Italy, Latin American symposiums in Mexico, and most recently at the International Center for Photography, New York.
