Deke Erh - Photographer with a Mission

End of March 2018, the nautical spectacle Sail Kampen will be held for the sixth time since 2002. Billed as the largest Easter event in the Netherlands, it is expected to draw over 200000 visitors to the beautiful old Hanseatic city at the borders of the IJssel. Among the ships that will sail in, is a century old wooden sailing ship Saeolöer, whose owner is one of the most special participants of the event. His name is Deke Erh (depicted above), famous freelance photographer and explorer from Shanghai. Galerie LuS is delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit a selection of Deke Erhs astonishing photography during this event. On our web site, I have posted a short article about Deke Erh, including his background and a few examples of his work (see link below).
