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

When is a Mountain Free work

In 2017 I photographed the filled with mysterious stories Montserrat in Cataluña, the stones I brought with me from the Moroccan Sahara and Tibetan Highlands and in 2018 the equally mysterious and mighty Georgian Caucasus. Fascinated by the silent, stable presence and yet constant changeability of the 'faces of the mountain' I look into the question When is a Mountain? In photographic studies I research this the experience of scale, perspective and space with a variation of images of mountains, rocks and stones.

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.
