Galerie Sehnsucht started as a gallery of photographic art at the iconic Hofbogen in Rotterdam, giving emerging and seasoned photographers a change exhibiting their work. After some years the gallery decided to read the sign of the times and decided to exchange the permanent location for a nomadic existence, organising pop-up exhibitions, workshops and small events in the middle of society, and outside the former gallery walls, while offering the collection for sale through digital, web-based and social channels.
Sehnsucht now is a collective of photographic artists who experiment with the borders of photography out of a feeling of curiosity or longing to cooperate and participate with the gallery in its activities. This will contribute to the development of interesting photography and the creation of a collection of photography with a distinct signature. The artists are Nicole Hagesteijn, Mark van Hattem, Jacqueline Louter, Mariska Pool, Dieter Provoost, Olga Rook, Leander Varekamp, Helma Vlemmings & John de Vos. You’ll find more info on this site (See Artists).
Galerie Sehnsucht is also selling point for vintage, analogue cameras from the collection of the CHP, the Cameraherstelpunt. This is a small firm in Rotterdam that repairs and sells vintage cameras. We don’t have a webshop; you will have to come over to our events in order to see, try and buy the cameras. Take a look in the menu at cameras under Art and more to see what kind of cameras we sell. We can also search and look for certain types of cameras for you if you are looking for something special. All cameras are sold with a three month guarantee. Furthermore, you get a free workshop darkroom at CHP, and when you’ve followed a workshop “the magic of analogue” in Galerie Sehnsucht, you get a 10% discount on camera’s priced below € 150,00.
