Goos van der Veen (Netherlands, 1958) has been working as a photographer since 1983, for magazines and press agencies. From 2010 on he concentrated on personal projects. Recent exhibitions in Heerenveen (NL) 2012 and Sydney, Australia 2019.
His current body of work 'Untitled (ink on paper)' is a collection of autonomous, printed photographs. Although the images seem to depict a an existing reality, there are little or no clues why the photo was taken.
A spin-off of this was a portrait of Amsterdam (Amsterdam - The City Proper), sharing the same way of looking and the same liveliness, curiosity and amazement.
The Enchanted Landscape is the latest project, and not only borrows from Untitled (ink on paper) the untitledness, but it actually shares photos with its older siblings.
In the end, his work is just a cloud of photographs, that can be consumed one by one, or grouped together to tell a story or create a more poetic ensemble.
