Untitled, 2016

Teun Hocks is one of the founders and iconic artists of staged photography in the Netherlands. In his studio he constructs a stage with a painted backdrop. He then poses himself on this stage and takes a black and white photograph of the scene using an old camera with a timer. The resulting silver gelatin print is hand-colored by the artist using oil paint. This peculiar technique gives his work an oddly timeless quality, atypical for photographs of performances.
