Bertien van Manen, I will be Wolf (1975), edition of 5, 29 x 19,3 cm

I will be Wolf

A solo exhibition by Bertien van Manen (NL, 1942).

21 April – 9 June 2018 
Opening: Saturday 21 April, 17:00 to 21:00

In 1975, well-known Dutch photographer Bertien van Manen took a series of black-and-white photographs capturing daily life in metropolitan Hungary.

Her snapshots of commuters, grocers, chemists, café workers, and street vendors contain all the hallmarks of a bygone era, before the grip of globalisation was able to make its mark on the country. Imbued with an air of nostalgia, the series takes its title from the poem Grief by the 20th century Hungarian poet József Attila.

I will be Wolf brings together many of these never-before-seen images.

A book of the entire series was recently published at MACK, with the editorial direction of renowned British photographer Stephen Gill.
