About Aloys Ginjaar:
In the fifties the photo book The Family of Man made an everlasting impression on Aloys Ginjaar (Amsterdam, 1946). This optimistic, lyrical image of the world inspired him on his journey to becoming a life seeking photographer. ‘Long live life!’ remains his motto , as he catches life as it appears to his loving eyes. As he says : ‘You can better watch the game, if you don’t join in’.
His work has - amongst more - been published three times in the World Press Photo book (1973, 1975, 1977), on postcard with Art Unlimited and sold by auction at Sotheby’s Amsterdam. Since November 2000 Aloys Ginjaar has been organizing the monthly Photographers Evening, an informal and stimulating meeting point for the Dutch photographic community. Unique in the world: www.fotografenavond.nl He has also been the curator of several photography exhibitions at the ABC Treehouse Gallery.
