2006 was an unparalleled year in the Dutch history of photography. With crowdpulling exhibitions of international allure, record proceeds at auctions, young talents breaking through, new photography initiatives such as publishers, galleries and festivals and a rising number of enrolments at photo academies, photography in the Netherlands was doing very well. GUP benefits from this past and current boom. GUP 4 reports on the strong demand for and the continuing interest in nude photography. The many nude exhibitions around the globe in the coming months confirm this trend.
Photographers highlighted in this issue include: Rutger ten Broeke, Antione d'Agata, Martijn de Vries and Sue Jones among many others.
