Aart-Jan and his Work
Aart-Jan van Broekhuizen was born in Wageningen in 1961. He lives and works in Amsterdam.
The basis of his work encompasses the flowing images that, under the influence of sun, shadow, wind and surroundings appear on the water’s surface. Dynamic and transient. Captured by the camera in a moment in time.
There, where the photo is edited (contrast, definition, etc.) all care is taken to retain the effect of the original image. These images are essentially natural scenes. Or actually considered from a cultural point of view, they show reflections of a man-made urban landscape.
Through their often high abstract content, the photos create their own world where association and esthetic experience gives them free reign.
