The news that Galerie BORZO has been accepted to bring a solo presentation/feature to Art Basel 2015 is cause for celebration! Some say it's easier to get a meeting with the pope than to get a slot at Art Basel as a gallery.

 Katja Weitering writes a blog for Jeditha de Groot selecteert uit: Fotografie, Kunst, Mode about a photo she selected from the Spaarnestad archives.
