Photo Art Collection

Art Photography

Maartje Roos graduated of the Dutch Photo Academy in 2010, was asked in 2015 to participate in the World Photography Cup. She received several nominations and was named as one of the most talented photographers in the Netherlands of 2014.

Maartje Roos doesn’t take pictures, she creates images.

Her narrative images are all manifestations of creating her own reality. This makes her demand the utmost of her creativity. An image always starts with a picture in her head. That picture will be transferred into a photo. This is not only a matter of quickly taking a photo; it is a long term process in which she is in charge of everything. Location, models, clothing, lighting, shooting and editing are all part of the process. She often creates one photo out of multiple photos, using the digital palette and her ability to empathize. She adds and omits, balancing on registering and directing a photo. What remains is her image, a single work of art. Reality or fantasy, that is hard to tell. 

The photo art collection consists conceptual narrative and scenic photography. History, drama, depth and nature featuring the photography of Maartje Roos. Reality and interpretation in her constructed works of art make this original photo art.

The artworks can be seen on exhibitions and can be ordered.

(Lambda print is a photo print made with 'the Lambda' onto light-sensitive material. The photographic material was exposed with three lasers: red, green and blue. And the highlighted material then developed and fixed. The result of this classical photochemical process is astounding grid charge.
(Lambda Print, C-Print, Profprint: these are the three names that stand for this exposure technique)
