Photographed with a smartphone

In 2018 Huawei invited photographer Alec Soth to try the camera of the Huawei P20 Pro. Soth used the smartphone for a few weeks. Travel, family vacations and the daily life of the American photographer were captured. Thanks to smartphones, it is possible for anyone to take photos in high resolution, although it is not yet a widely used artistic medium. Perhaps the rapid technological developments will change this in the future.

Oprichting Huawei

Huawei is op 15 september 1987 opgericht door de Chinese zakenman Ren Zhengfei. Met als doel de zakelijke markt van telecommunicatie te voorzien. Binnen de eerste 10 jaar groeide Huawei uit tot één van de grootste leveranciers van telefoonnetwerken van heel China. In 2004 kwam Huawei ook op de Nederlandse markt. Inmiddels zijn er in Europa ongeveer 68 miljoen Huawei-gebruikers, waarvan er 1,5 miljoen gebruikers in Nederland. 

Sleeping by the Mississipi

In Sleeping by the Mississipi Soth portrays America's iconic, but often neglected "third coast". It is perhaps his best known project, and one of his longest running projects. His large format color photographs give a varied representation of people, landscapes and interiors.
