About

Bart Dykstra is a photographer and creative director.

He studied fine art documentary & editorial portrait photography under Corinne Noordenbos, Rob Philip and Vivianne Sassen and graphic design under Herman van Bostelen and Bert Koenderink at the University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU). Currently based in London, UK.

His work is about mapping a territory's semantic atlas. That is, people seem to shape and get shaped by their daily environment: the fusion of location and persona that become strings of interwoven narrative-styled fine art documentary photographs.

Besides doing personal and commissioned projects for gallery and book publication purposes, commercial and editorial portrait photography, he also focuses on creative direction (see here) and is playing & recording extremely loud electric guitars as well.

More News From Nowhere

More News From Nowhere is a project in which Bart Dykstra (1981, The Netherlands) photographs unposed and isolated expressions of tension in people’s faces that are seen in urban non-places, in which nothing happens obviously or is recognizable, yet they seem to be part of the same global culture.

Photographed in different capitals of the world, these photographs echo a direction towards intercontinental indivisibility on a relational and dialogical level that is simultaneously spatial/temporal, central/marginal and closed/open-ended that offers a transformative view of considerable generative potential. Facilitating portrayal observations under the umbrella of a coherent idea of space, the portraits in these urban non-places shape at the same time a personal space analysis by which space both creates and is created by human interchange.

More News From Nowhere is a continuing project, wherein the main capitals Dublin, Amsterdam, Brussels, Helsinki and Paris have been first to generate the content of this work.
