Candid - photo exhibition
Museum Panorama Mesdag presents a selection of over seventy photos of contemporary beach life from a non-commonplace perspective, in the exhibition CANDID.
The photos were commissioned by the museum from four up-and-coming photographers from The Hague that have started a collective on this occasion: Giedo van der Zwan (1967), Mirjam Rosa (1982), Merel Schoneveld (1983) and Sandra Uittenbogaart (1975). Together they created a portrait of contemporary beach life, that became nostalgic sooner than expected. The exhibition CANDID is on show until 28 February 2021 in The Hague.

The CANDID collective
The diversity of the seaside resort is the common denominator of the collective. As a result, the photographers challenge and inspire each other. Ordinary people are captured in everyday situations against the backdrop of the familiar seaside resort, but they appear to be anything but ordinary. The artists do not stage-manage nor pass judgement; their photos are self-explanatory, honest, and authentic. In other words: they are CANDID.
