Photography Lunch Talks #32 Daan Russcher

daan_russcher

Daan Russcher is a photographer based in Amsterdam whose work focuses on the spatial representation of urban areas.

In 2020, he graduated from the photography department at the HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht. A few years ago, he also completed a Bachelor of Built Environment, an influence that is clearly visible in his works.

Indeed, having studied both photography and built environments in college, his personal experience is central to his work, allowing him to create a visual document that breaks from the traditional representation of space.

He often starts his projects by immersing himself in a specific place through photographic documentation. He aims his attention at fairly banal materials and objects that he encounters in the places he is exploring. By doing so, he examines the physical characteristics of the urban areas he captures. Subsequently, he uses an intuitive method during his creative process, in which he forms his own interpretation of this perception by applying digital interventions and constructing his own materials.

You can view more of his work on his website.
