TOUCH & TRY SPEAKERS
On that same day you can join Fokko Muller, street photographer, Olympus visionary and UPR Jury; Jurgen Onland, street photographer and UPR winner of several awards including 1st place UPR LDN 18 and learn all about their experience on the UPR.
He is a Dutch photographer with a special interest in street photography. " Street photography changed my way of looking into the world. I like being on the streets, seeing the interaction between people and hearing the fragments of their conversations.
I enjoy showing people in their daily environment. I like you to take a closer look and wonder what is happening. Sometimes I want to make you smile. My photos are always made with respect for the subject.
I teach street photography workshops, I give lectures on street photography and I published my photo book "The Street".
The best thing about street photography is that you walk out the door and never know what you bring home in your camera."
I want to discover myself and know whats going on in my mind. Therefore I use photography as a tool for this self exploration. The knowledge I develop from photography contributes to my personal development. Feelings and thoughts are transformed into pictures which are often anecdotal and tell a little story.
I started photography in 2011 with the birth of my oldest son Boudewijn. In an autodidact way I try to make photography myself. Inspired by daily life, music, books, movies and of course other photographers.
My approach is personal and connecting, with respect for subjects and people. My photographic signature can best be described as contrasting black & white with surprising compositions.
