INSTITUTE FOR THE HARMONIOUS DEVELOPMENT OF ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Our little playground, the Institute for the Harmonious Development of Art and Photography (IHDAP), is all grown up and it now has its own webpage.

So what the heck is the Institute ?
We see it as a small sanctuary where one can enjoy photography among friends and reconnect with other art forms. 
It will give you a chance to dive deep into our current projects, discover lost pearls from our archives and be introduced to some truly remarkable artists in the Recommendations Section.
As of now, we will be starting with an extended overview of our "American Photographs“ project and present Frederik Petersen to you, a Danish photographer we met at the eerie Creation Evidence Museum in Texas.
