SEX CAVES AND MALE DISCO DIVAS CAPTURED BY IRIS OOMS & DENNIS BRANKO
The ongoing digital photo exhibition for young and talented nightlife photographers, unforgettablenight.com, has during its first month had a higher average of monthly visitors than Europe's biggest photography and art museums.
Next week, Unforgettablenight will publish two photo stories to celebrate 55.000 page views in less than a month. Dutch photographers Iris Ooms and Dennis Branko exhibit their unforgettable moments–alongside the other seven photographers who currently exhibit their work at unforgettablenight.com.
See two sides of Amsterdam captured by nightlife photographers Iris Ooms and Dennis Branko. On Monday March 25, their respective unforgettable night will be published in the digital exhibition, containing fifteen photos from both photographers.
IRIS OOMS spends her night in Club Trouw, where she looses track of time and space, absorbed by the never-failing seducing atmosphere of the club. Her night out in Amsterdam turned out to be a long one, where boundaries were absent, and infinite inspiration present. It included, among others, Hard Ton; a half-naked male disco diva from Venice who Iris has immortalized through some sensational shots in a basement.
DENNIS BRANKO starts out in Bar Ludwig, which he refers to as the “sex cave”. His lens captures a blur of beautiful and euphoric people and the women seem to be particularly striking this very night – he can’t take his eyes from them. Decadence is the theme when he later moves on to The Chicago Social Club. Dennis is a huntsman of great photo opportunities, capturing the night both through his lens and through taking part of the madness.
Iris Ooms is a Dutch workaholic photographer who founded the collective of girl photographers called De Fotomeisjes, in 2008. Iris is based in Amsterdam and her work spans from various fashion shoots via nightlife photography to covering major dance festivals like Mysteryland and Tomorrowland. Iris has been working for Amsterdam fashion week, Moêt and Red Bull. Her photo collective work as resident photographers in clubs such as AIR, Trouw and The Chicago Social Club.
The Amsterdam based photographer has been covering nightlife for nearly a decade. His approach is to take raw pictures of spontaneous, fun and in–the-moment adventures with his own very colourful and extravagant signature style. Apart from Amsterdam nightlife, Dennis has also traveled around Europe documenting the various party scenes in Berlin, London, Paris, Barcelona and Copenhagen. Among his brand clients are Nike, Converse, Coolcat, Bavaria and Adidas.
