To pick up a stone photobook Free work

"In photographic studies, Den Boer examines the experience of scale, perspective and spatiality through an eclectic variety of images of mountains, rocks and stones. Time, light and distance determine the experience of something as massive as a mountain, but can the expression of a mountain also be discovered in a close-up, or even in a single stone? The diversity of her images show how changeable our view of a seemingly static object can be."

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 Free work

Thinking of and working with the notion of silence the desert slowly became my focus. The desert is not only a place where it’s literally quiet, but can also be interpreted as a metaphor for silence; it’s where a specific place and a ‘state of mind’ comes together.

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."

Silent Witness International + Multi disciplinary collaboration

"Claudia den Boer visualises the possible upcoming disappearance of traditional trades from Malaysian culture in a photo series. Den Boer photographed the stillness and emptiness of workspaces without the artisans in it. Caught in between the presence and absence, the workspace metaphorically becomes a silent witness of the artisans’ work."

How is a home created? How much individuality can a home portray when it is a part of a whole? How exchangeable is identity? With these questions in mind I explored the new housing development at the tip of peninsula Katendrecht in Rotterdam.
