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? Through my photography I research this experience of scale, perspective and imagery.

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."

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.

2, 4, 6, 8 Free 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.
