What’s your view of Haarlem?
In the exhibition Views of Haarlem (22th September 2023– 7th January 2024), you can see how artists in the 17th century look at Haarlem and how they showed the city at its best.
How do you see the city? Is Haarlem simply beautiful for you, or is there more to tell and see? As artists in the 17th century depicted the most important places, we ask you to photograph your view. And thus indicate what makes Haarlem special for you.
The most beautiful, funniest, most surprising photos are giving a place in the exhibition Views of Haarlem. And of course the best wins a prize.
