Imagebeeld Edition

20x25 refers to the 8x10” format of the large view camera, as well as the dimensions of the photographs presented in the portfolios of this new collection. Each portfolio is the result of a close collaboration with an artist and/or photographer.

The 20x25 collection by Imagebeeld Edition complements the activities of Imagebeeld Production, founded by Jean-Paul Deridder in 2011, with the aim to support the creation and the knowledge of photographic and artistic works.

De benaming 20x25 verwijst zowel naar het formaat 8x10 inch van de technische camera voor grootformaatfotografie als naar de afmetingen van de foto’s voorgesteld in de portfolio’s van deze gloednieuwe collectie. Elke portfolio is het resultaat van een nauwe samenwerking met een kunstenaar, een fotograaf.

De collectie 20x25 van Imagebeeld Edition is een aanvulling op de activiteiten van Imagebeeld Production, opgericht door Jean-Paul Deridder in 2011 met de bedoeling steun te verlenen aan de creatie en de verspreiding van fotografisch en artistiek werk.

20x25 est un énoncé qui fait autant référence au format 8x10" de la chambre photographique de grand format qu’aux dimensions des photographies présentées par les portfolios de cette toute nouvelle collection. Chaque portfolio est le résultat d’une étroite collaboration avec un.e artiste, un.e photographe.

La collection 20x25 d’Imagebeeld Edition vient compléter les activités d’Imagebeeld Production, fondée par Jean-Paul Deridder en 2011, dans le but de soutenir la création et la diffusion d’œuvres photographiques et artistiques.

10 gelatin silver prints

My journey began in Los Angeles where I met up with Garry Winogrand and was his driver for a couple of days. His last Cadillac had just been stolen. The third, if I remember correctly. I had first met him in 1979. During a lunch with Henry Wessel in San Francisco, I asked if he knew where I could find Garry Winogrand. “Of course, no problem. Here is his phone number. Just call him,” he said. And the next day I spent a fantastic day with Garry in Los Angeles. He showed me his famous drawers with undeveloped films and gave me a box of about thirty prints to be published in a Swedish photography magazine I was working for. After these were published, I helped organize a small exhibition of his work at the Moderna museet in Stockholm. Afterwards the prints were returned by mail. Everything was much easier in those days. The friendship with Garry was a real door opener. I was welcomed everywhere. I met Robert Adams in Los Angeles while he was photographing for the book Los Angeles Spring. I also met William Eggleston in Memphis and Richard Benson in Newport. I had brought along my 8 x 10 camera. During my travels, I photographed in the daytime and developed the negatives in my motel room at night. I can assure you that it is wonderful to wake up in the morning seeing ten 8 x 10 negatives hanging on a string.
