Jewry in Antwerp

 Title – Jewry

Photogarpher – Jip van Bodegom

In Antwerp (Belguim) live 20.000 jews and even more tourists which made it hard for me to take a photo without lot’s of people on it. I went to this alley three days in a row and I took this photo at the last day of my holiday at a calm sunday.

The HDR photo is taken from a low angle to emphasize drama. When you take it from a low angle everything becomes bigger. I have desatured the colours and add a blue toning to increase the drama just a bit more.

Biography Jip van Bodegom

I do not like to tell something about myself. I’d rather let my work speak, but in short: Photography is a passion that I am working on for some time. It all started 11 years ago when I firstly get in touch with photography. I received a 1 megapixel digital camera for my 14th birthday and found a new interest. Passionate as I was I mostly learned by just taking and analysing photos without lots of knowledge from the books. The self-learning and exploring method still makes it just more interesting for me.

I have studied Photography at the school of Professional Photography for one year and stopped because it descreased my motivation extremely. I believe there isn’t a certain way to learn and understand creativity.

I can describe my work as dramatic, dark and mystic. I just like the filmish and almost surreal atmospheric scenes like a tensive dream.
