We can enjoy the Anton Pieck Parade on December 13th. For one day, a historic part of Haarlem is going back in time. On the Grote Markt and the streets behind the cathedral “Grote Bravo” you will experience the revival of the early 1900s. It will be buzzing with a lot of festive activities, 19th century figures and old time crafts.
Who was Anton Pieck?
Anton Franciscus Pieck (Den Helder, 19 April 1895 – Overveen, 24 November 1987) was a Dutch painter, artist and graphic artist. His works are noted for their nostalgic or fairy tale-like character and are widely popular, appearing regularly on cards and calendars.
From 1952 to 1974, Pieck was responsible for designing almost everything for fairy tale park Efteling in Kaatsheuvel, now one of the major theme parks in Europe. His work for “De Efteling” has been of huge importance for the future of the park, since almost all later designers used his graphic characteristics in their designs (such as materials, colors and shapes).

Vivian Maier, Street Photographer is a retrospective exhibition featuring the work of a female street photographer whose impressive oeuvre was only discovered at the end of her life – and then immediately caused a worldwide sensation. Vivian Maier (New York, 1926 – 2009) worked as a professional nanny throughout her life. In her free time, she documented life in large American cities such as New York and Chicago, although no one in her immediate circle ever saw the results. She left behind an imposing body of work, consisting of 150,000 negatives.
The Foam photography museum is located on the Keizersgracht 609, 1017 DS Amsterdam
Good to know, with City Card/Stadspas/ICOM/Museumcard/I Amsterdam City Card free access is available.
Our Haarlem Photo Club member Daniela Muente made it to the Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk top 10 winners with her photo taken during the Haarlem Photo Walk co-organised with the Haarlem Photo Club this October. Congratulations Daniela, the Haarlem Photo Club is super proud of you!
Whenever I visit Amsterdam, the ongoing street scenes, always capture my attention. The feeling of relaxation, the eccentric people walking around, the hobos on the corner hanging out next to the street kids, the busy people who are always in a compulsive rush to get nowhere. But, in saying that, it does make for interesting street photography!
Haarlem! Summer! Open Air! Photography! We had the best ingredients for a wonderful PHOTO WALK. A bit of wind didn’t spoil our day: 42 photographers having a great day!
What about the shoots? Our jury, composed of our Photo Club Team members and Photographers Alex Chalkley and Gerlinde de Haas made a selection of photos of the walk and commented them and gave some names and links of masters of street photography. Our Jury’s message is: get inspired, learn from each other and learn from constructive feedback to improve your skills.

Like this picture, there are numerous other photos that have been under the banner of National Geographic. The work of 10 great photographers exhibited in the Tropical Museum in Amsterdam.
Autumn is getting closer and it is more tempting to plop, with legs up on the bench this weekend but that would be a shame. Indeed, it is the weekend of culture, this 13th and 14th September in Haarlem. There are lots of activities to do in the city. Here the highlights in a row.
You’ve probably already seen the world’s most famous landmarks through photos that show them in all their beautiful, historical glory. Here’s what happens when the photo is taken from another angle.
The Haarlem Photo Club is a network for anyone who likes reading articles about photography, joining in photo contests, connecting with other photographers, learning new techniques and sharing experiences at an event, lecture or workshop. Beginner or a pro, join us. All skill levels and equipment are welcome. Only workshops will be segmenting levels to let everyone learning.
The Amsterdam photo fair UNSEEN is rapidly approaching 18-21 September 2014. This fair draws a large international crowd and is packed with events for anyone interested in photography. Many people go to this fair with high expectations of seeing some amazing high quality photographs, by undiscovered photography talent and unseen work by established photographers.
But some get disappointed… Why?
Haarlem CS (Central Station): origin, style, architectonic details, difference between Haarlem CS and railway stations in other cities, renovations, qualification as “Rijksmonument” (state monument) and decoration for both national as international blockbuster movies like “Zwartboek” and “Ocean’s Twelve”.
