Bastiaan Woudt - catalogue

The photographic journey of Bastiaan Woudt (b. 1987, the Netherlands) started the way it does for most photographers: by capturing his loved ones. His passion for the medium made him expand his horizon, and by immersing himself into the world of photobooks and exhibitions, he developed from his early Pictorialist style into something wholly more abstract yet sharp, and with a strong focus on detail.

His portraits and nudes transform the subject from mere humans into something unreal. Woudt experiments heavily with new methods and cameras to keep on evolving as a photographer and to move towards a complete and unique signature style. Like Fieret and Sannes, Woudt does not have a formal training as a photographer and instead, developed his own techniques and style of photography. His images are often on the edge of what we consider photographic, and his subjects often become more than human, appearing as genderless and ageless creatures.

In 2014, Woudt was chosen as New Dutch Photography Talent 2015 by GUP Magazine. He was named one of the biggest talents working today by the prestigious magazine The British Journal of Photography in 2016, furthering his position as a talent on the rise. In 2016, he won the Van Vlissingen Art Foundation Award. That led him to his series on Morocco, Karawan and a book - Bastiaan Woudt in Marokko, which was published as his first monograph. In 2017, Woudt, travelled to the village of Mukono, Uganda, where he created the series for his book Mukono, which was met with wide international acclaim. Woudt’s work has been added to many private and corporate collections.

Bastiaan Woudt is now represented by Kahmann Gallery in Amsterdam.
