Juul Hondius

Juul Hondius (1970)

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.

My work centres on the status and impact of media images and the ways in which they enter and determine our collective memory. How images can construct an imago or how they sustain or shape our narratives and worldviews, especially documentary images with a claim to truth. I hope my work makes people wonder about what they see, how they see it and how we are usually conditioned to see only one perspective. My photographic works are fantasies based on facts- but facts made up of complex relations. By doing so I try to analyse the different visual strategies and styles of image-making that frame a subject. In more recent works, the work itself tries to frame it’s subject in a more subjective way, playing with it’s history and present mediatised status quo.
