The work of the self-taught Dutch photographer Gerard Petrus Fieret (1924-2008) is still being discovered, exhibited and written about. For Fieret’s 80th birthday celebration, The Hague Museum of Photography held a retrospective exhibition of his work, and in 2010 a second book on their extensive holdings of his photographs was published. Fieret’s work will be on display with Deborah Bell Photographs at the AIPAD Photography Show New York, March 17-20, 2011, at the Park Avenue Armory.- AIPAD.
