Future 400: From the Streets to the Heart

Geschreven door Tracy Metz op . Gepost in , , , .

This second episode of my Future 400 podcast looks at work by Dutch and American photographers who are part of the annual international photo festival Photoville in Lower Manhattan. “Even though they are an Atlantic apart, there is a shared sensibility here.”

Dutch photographer Ernst Coppejans delves deep into the lives of LGBTQIA+ people living on the streets in New York. Kennedi Carter, a young Black photographer from the South, dresses people of color in a combination of her own imagining, of garb from colonial times and contemporary streetwear.

Future 400 is a bi-weekly four-part podcast series from the Dutch Consulate in New York, created and presented by myself as the director of the John Adams Institute. It marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of New Amsterdam, the city that became New York. Each episode highlights a selection of the creative collaborations between artists, communities and institutions in both the Netherlands and the United States that are brought together in the program of Dutch Culture USA.
