In honor of our capital's 750th anniversary, Dutch-based Ecuadorian photographer Cris Toala Olivares presents; "Amsterdam," an unprecedented, photographic tribute to Amsterdam.
There are few cities in the world where daylight is as special as in Amsterdam. Here the sunlight is reflected from the canals onto the façades, which are therefore illuminated from both above and below. The surface of the water, undulated by the wind and boats, causes the reflected light to dance, as it were, on the facades. Not every visitor notices this light, but it is this dancing light that has been captured by Cris Toala Olivares in a special and sublime way in this new collection of his photographs.
