Giedo van der Zwan

  • Giedo van der Zwan sees beauty and absurdity in everyday scenes. To capture his vision he prefers to get as close to his subjects (for this project mostly seaside visitors) as possible, while also aiming to photograph them candidly.

    He uses flash to bring out every detail. It takes timing, a bit of patience and sometimes a certain courage. 

    “Like Franz Kafka, I believe that anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old. And when you can also appreciate the weirdness of us humans, you’ll have fun right until the end watching!” Scheveningen, May 2022
