The Joan Miró Foundation welcomes its latest exhibition, Rotterdammers. Featuring a selection of portraits of inhabitants of Rotterdam taken by Dutch photographer Shehera Grot, the images reveal her interest in the personal stories of her subjects, many of whom are, like her, people from different origins and cultures. Born in Rotterdam to parents of Surinam origin, Grot’s photography work often centres on social diversity and inclusion. 

Grot's photographic work aims to give us a look into the lives of people who transit every day between diverse identities, presenting us with photographs of boys and girls of different ages, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and members of older generations, like her own aunt, portrayed dressed in traditional Surinamese clothing. All of these people are shown in scenes of everyday life such as at a baptism, birthday parties, school or other celebrations.
