Hotshoe Magazine, London, United Kingdom
Bill Kouwenhoven is the International Editor of Hotshoe magazine and contributes to other photography journals in the United States, England and Europe including Afterimage, Aperture, British Journal of Photography, European Photography, and Photonews. In addition to writing introductions to more than a dozen artist’s monographs, he is the author of a major survey of contemporary Spanish photography and video, Nuevas Historias. He lives and works in Berlin and New York.
Mr. Kouwenhoven is especially interested in well-edited documentary and photojournalism oriented work as well as compelling work addressing contemporary issues whether abstract or concrete. He is not interested in commercial or fashion related work, but can always be persuaded by the quality and strength of vision expressed by the photographer in any genre.
Mr. Kouwenhoven is looking for work to include in the magazines to which he contributes or edits as well as for the purposes of nominating work for other photography festivals. He can offer help editing and suggesting exhibition and publication opportunities. Mr. Kouwenhoven brings experience of over 15 years in photography and a thorough knowledge of contemporary practice, gallery tastes, and publishing.
