Opening reception: Wednesday 6 August at 6pm

Using photography as a tool to understand the world in which she lives, Cuny Janssen continued her explorations in her recent exhibition ‘There is Something in the Air in Prince Albert’. As Janssen explains “Never before I was at a place where so much was still visible and sensible of the pre-history. When walking through the landscape I could easily image dinosaurs. As far as my eyes could see there wasn’t a single person or animal. But I felt that I wasn’t alone. There was something in the air! It was the area where two hundred thousand years ago one of the first humans lived. In the thousands of years that followed, they spread into world”.
Janssen states “with the results of my photographical activities in Prince Albert I hope to confirm life itself, it’s complexity, it’s pleasure and especially it’s beauty”.
