From the series "Pretty distorted" 

The world we live in is far from perfect, yet the photos depicting it are often photoshopped to perfection. It inspired me to experiment - not with Photoshop but with various cross-media techniques - adding 'controlled chaos' and a tactile quality to my work. Both the world and me turn out to be pretty distorted.

Midsummer night @ Oosterhouw by Sander Martens

It started with a tip from Annemarie van Buuren: I should talk to a guy called Wilbert van de Kamp some time. I did, which resulted in a spectacular day at and around a fairytale estate in the middle of nowhere. We first visited a number of biological farmers, came back to find the mansion filled with hipsters from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Groningen, Scandinavia, and North & South America, and finished the day with an outstanding dinner. Check it out!
