Utopia of Light comprises around 300 photographic pieces that afford an overview of the rich and varied body of work that Dutch artist Winfred Evers (born in 1954 in Haarlem) had been building since 1975. In the early 1980s, Evers arranged objects into small still-lifes and created installations. He experimented with shapes, textures and shadows until a strong composition emerged, which he captured with his view camera and destroyed after each session.
Once Evers - from the outset more creative artist than straightforward photographer - started working digitally in 1992, not only did the possibilities for editing and manipulating images increase exponentially, but also a shift in his subject matter occurred: from thrilling objets trouvés to quirky cityscapes and collages with sometimes clearly symbolic overtones. Winfred Evers' work has been featured prominently in leading magazines such as European Photography, Perspektief, Camera Austria and American Photographer and has been included in important collections at home and abroad. In his in-depth introduction (in English and Dutch) Eric Min discusses Winfred Evers' work: "a parallel universe of forms in the border zone between recognisability and abstraction - highly individual and universal at the same time."
