Pieter Boersma

Boersma is a versatile, socially committed photographer: he recorded activism in Amsterdam, took shots for the Netherlands Anti-Apartheid Movement, photographed artists, and travelled all over the world.

His love of music took him and his camera to every jazz concert and jam session of any significance. He follows the careers of such giants of jazz as Han Bennink and Willem Breuker, as well as Chet Baker and Charles Mingus.

With an eye for the background, Boersma’s ‘Drumming’ puts the drummer in the spotlight. The exhibition interprets what jazz was, is, and can be – not just glamorous and captivating, but also, and perhaps primarily, ragged, dark and euphoric.
