Jeff Wall and an Apple

This morning I stumbled upon this photograph while I was looking for some older work. I photographed this after seeing Monologue from Jeff Wall. I liked the idea of the stage with the streetlamp and the lit window in the background and the darkness, which is not often seen in his photographs. In my photograph … Continue reading “Jeff Wall and an Apple”

Always looking for the best fitting connection

For my current employer Jeveka I wanted to create a visual identity for a couple of larger (then) upcoming projects, specifically the catalogue and a new website, while we are also in the process of defining the corporate identity. Jeveka deals in fasteners and tools. Their vision which I helped put into words last year … Continue reading “Always looking for the best fitting connection”

Childhood

For a short series of photographs about my childhood (a Fotoacademie assignment) I wanted to build a small house with Lego. Sitting at my dinner table, sticking the first bricks on the base plate, peace descended on me. I forgot what time it was and what chores I needed to finish as well that afternoon. … Continue reading “Childhood”

End of summer

Last summer I shot this conceptual series entitled End of summer. Be sure to check out the behind the scenes pics on Instagram (linked below the original photograph), featuring me on a ladder behind a very old fashioned looking camera. Did I say conceptual? Yes I did, but I forgot what the hell the concept … Continue reading “End of summer”

The Neon Demon

After watching the movie The Neon Demon, which I don’t recommend if you want to have a cosy evening, fellow photographer Marieta Landkroon and I were inspired and decided to do a shoot based on this Neon Demon. Especially since I like shooting work with a movie in mind and several themes of The Neon … Continue reading “The Neon Demon”

Destroying consumer society

The actual demise of consumer society might be far from now, but I wanted to make a small series of photographs on that concept. It has turned out quite literal. Reflecting on the photographs as a whole (just now) I think it might be better to focus on what you want rather than on what … Continue reading “Destroying consumer society”

White plastic

Short series white on white concerning the liquid and solid states of plastic. The plastic contains liquid and was a liquid. Originally constructed from oil, but you can also easily melt it down. Is it a cycle? (Rhetorical question.) Starting with the funny “bootstrap” image Watering… These 4 photographs are for sale now printed 28 x 35 … Continue reading “White plastic”

I hate Rembrandt

I do not hate Rembrandt as a person or an artist but I am starting to seriously dislike this “Dutch painter from the golden age”-lighting in photography nowadays. I think it is a cheap trick. Even though it is beneficial for an artist to imitate things from the past as precisely as possible, because we … Continue reading “I hate Rembrandt”

Running through a forest

Last friday I shot a photograph in my series Human males in contemporary society, inspired by the movie Under the skin (2013). Thanks Joep Cornelissen for running and big thanks to Martijn ter Schiphorst for assisting me! For some time I wanted to try the motion effect where the camera is riding on rails keeping … Continue reading “Running through a forest”
