Sam Rentmeester: 25 years of photographing TU Delft
02 October 2019 14:01 till 26 November 2019 14:01 - Location: TU Delft Library
For 25 years Sam Rentmeester worked as a photographer for Delta, the independent journalistic platform of the TU Delft. Rentmeester knows how to beautifully portray student life, research, education, the buildings on campus, the laboratories and more. “I always try to arouse people’s curiosity with my photographs” Rentmeester tells us.
Disruptive fire and Olympic champions
The photo exhibition at the Library TU Delft displays a selection of his huge archive and gives a unique glimpse of TU Delft over the past 25 years. One of the photographs shows the disrupting fire at the Faculty of Architecture on 13 May 2008. Another panel displays individual portraits of several TU Delft students who went to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. And Rentmeester recalls that people who are afraid of heights shiver when seeing the image taken from the top of the weather measurement tower in Cabauw.
