  • Catalogue Essay

    Gertjan Bartelsman travelled around Columbia in the 1970s capturing strangers in sombre and refective moments on buses and trains, in bars and at work. These photographs showcase Bartelsman’s ability to create intimate images despite the large crowds among which he often finds his subject. Bartelsman has exhibited internationally, participating twice in the Venice Biennale.
