Bas Losekoot

Is a Dutch-born artist and photographer, concerned with socio-cultural issues in cities around the world. Working with cinematic apparatus, he is challenging our understanding of reality in everyday city-life as well as the limited narrative potential of representations of truth in documentary photography.

With an intuitive eye, he visualizes the human experience in modern megacities. His practice combines concepts of mobility, social geography and the cinematic. Bas Losekoot holds a BA in Fine Art Photography from the Royal Academy of the Arts in The Hague and recently graduated for an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London. His work has been exhibited widely in galleries and at festivals including New York Photo Festival, Voies-Off/Les Rencontres d’Arles and Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam.
