Eddy Seesing (1964) is an audiovisual portraitist. After intensive cultural anthropological research of a specifically defined group in western society, Seesing develops a concept. These concepts lead to series of portraits in the media photography and/or video. With these series of portraits Eddy Seesing creates installations, exhibitions.
Seesing shows the portrayed individuals as part of a larger framework of social and specific professional and economic relations. Apart from documenting a certain group in western society, Seesing aims at influencing public opinion. He uses the media photography and video to create works of cultural and societal analyses.
Since his graduation from the Tilburg Academy of Design Seesing created the following works:
Topmanagers (1994/1995), Opera Sopranos (1997/1999), Boughaz: portrait of three generations Moroccans in Gouda (2001/2003), Religion Today - Spirituality in the Netherlands (2004/2011) with this project he published his first book (ISBN 978 90 6868 544 2).
Currently Eddy Seesing works on his new project Lobbyists Today, a film installation portraying 25 professional lobbyists from all segments of society.
