The photographic journey of Bastiaan Woudt started the way it does for most photographers: by capturing his loved ones. His passion for the medium made him expand his horizon. And by immersing himself into the world of photobooks and exhibitions, he developed from his early Pictorialist style into something wholly more abstract yet sharp, and with a strong focus for detail.
His portraits and nudes transform the subject from mere humans into something unreal. Woudt experiments heavily with new methods and cameras to keep on evolving as a photographer and to move towards a complete and unique signature style.
In 2014 he was chosen as New Dutch Photography Talent, and in the same year, he joined the Kahmann Gallery. He was named one of the biggest talents working today by the prestigious magazine The British Journal of Photography in 2016, furthering his position as a talent on the rise. In 2017 he won the Van Vlissingen Art Foundation Award.
