Lot description
Since the mid-nineties, Ruud van Empel has devoted life to art photography, developing his images in thematic series. Since 2002, he has been working a great deal with nature and, in doing so, he has definitively found his present day characteristic visual language: photographic works with an unbelievable clarity of color, rich in detail, with intriguing representations, and a fairytale ambiance. Children are often featured prominently in his images. Van Empel combines forms with computer technology to create images that deceive our perception. He alters real life, natural elements to create impossible, otherworldly perfection. (Frank van de Schoor)
