We move through places in each moment of the day, it’s what we see around us, it’s where we meet each other.

PROJECTS

To pick up a stone Free work

To pick up a stone is an exploration into the idea of perception and a longing to get in close contact with the earth. This work explores how photography can add another layer to the changeability of our perception. It’s an invitation to look in a contemplative way at the most powerful and direct expressions of the earth - the place we inhabit - to evoke connectiveness.

Anchors photobook Free work

"With Anchors Den Boer shows that silence is very different from emptiness. The calm places shown in the book are attractively inviting but frightening at the same time. The book contains 24 images made between 2012 and 2015 on Dutch Islands, in small Belgian and Southern France villages, the New Mexican desert USA, the Tibetan Highlands and the Moroccan Sahara desert."

Cataract Free work

The idea of ‘seeing’ and ‘not-seeing’, inspired by philosophical texts brought by cultural philosopher Marc Colpaert, lies at the base of this work. Using two elements to explore this idea; my fascination with spaces and light.

IN CONTEXT

Free work in context
Mainly using an analog medium format camera, free work is my starting point in making images.

Collaboration & research
Exchange of thoughts and ideas through collaboration is something I value. (Research)projects about the city, urbanism and public space have my interest. The stage is also a space that inspires me.

Dialogue
Dialogue is about connecting to one and other and has the power to deepen empathy. It’s one of the reasons I like to collaborate.
