The talented mr. Hanswijk

Miike Takashi, Ice Cube, N.Y.C., Jules Deelder, Koen Flink, Mexico, Kamagurka,
Belgium, Spain, random port workers, boxers, Ice Cube, Archie Shepp, Jack Kerklaan,
Ellen ten Damme, Rem Koolhaas and Benidorm winter surivors never really looked quite
as real as they do on Frank Hanswijk’s extraordinary prints. Herefore Frank has
gained the status of being a true Rotterdam photographer (like Carel van Hees).
Raw, real and pressy, yet beautiful only because of that same realness, I guess.
Some people are capable of showing you a reality you always knew, but never
quite saw with those eyes. Excellent photographers pay the rent by doing just that.
Who needs a studio when there’s a whole world out there?

Here’s where it’s at
