Let me show you the world in my eyes...
Thank you for visiting my portfolio website. I am Bart, a photographer based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, focused on fine art Architecture, Landscape, and Urban photography in black and white.
Background...
I first got interested in photography whilst at university when I bought my first camera - a second hand analogue Minolta x300 - of a fellow student. To me photography is a means to express myself creatively that allows me to escape from the day to day drama and clear my head; it gives me a purpose to explore the world and to get to places or do things I would not normally get to or do otherwise.
I was originally trained as a scientist and the analytical skills I learned from that have found their way into a preference for clear compositions using graphic elements such as lines, shapes, textures etc, and strong black and white contrasts.
Inspiration...
Growing up in the 80s and being a fan of bands like U2 and Depeche Mode I became acquainted with Anton Corbijn’s photography and art work. I have always liked his raw and grainy black and white style of photography with strong contrasts between light and shadows.
Being a great lover of music still, I have also taken to seeking inspiration from song titles as captions to all my photographs to add another layer.
Over the last two years I have studied the works of many photographers and developed a love for the works of Sebastião Salgado, Michael Kenna and Henri Cartier-Bresson; they are a great source of inspiration.
