Guy Ackermans is a well-known photographer in Wageningen. He has selected his most beautiful photos of the Wageningen campus for a photo exhibition in Forum Library. To give all students and staff the opportunity to see the photos, the exhibition has been extended until at least the end of October 2021.
Work on display
The exhibition covers different themes: art, buildings, people, and events and gives a unique perspective on WURlife. The photos on display will vary during the exhibition period.
Guy Ackermans was born in Maastricht in 1958. During his forestry study at the then Hogeschool Wageningen (Agricultural College) he also took a professional photography course at the Fotovakschool in Apeldoorn. While a student he started working for the Hogeschoolblad and he still takes pictures for the Resource.
Ackermans loves to photograph the campus: "I find the Campus very attractive to walk around. The buildings are quite far apart and do not compete with each other. I think the two lawns are the backbone of the buildings, they bring peace and clarity to the campus."
