Hans Bol is a self-educated photographer, specialised in black and white photography. He has been the regular printer of the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam for more than 20 years. In that capacity, all the big names in Dutch photographic history went through his hands: Oorthuys, van der Elsken, Klein, Rotgans, Wessing, etc. The skills needed to thoroughly print the work of these photographers he obviously also uses when making his own work.
Previous exhibition venues include FOAM, Fotomuseum Den Haag, Museum Beelden aan Zee, Unseen and Haute Photographie. In 2020, Bol’s oeuvre was on view at a group show at Museum IJsselstein. His work is included in the collections of such museums as Rijksmuseum, Fotomuseum Den Haag, Het Nederlands Fotomuseum, Museum Beelden aan Zee and Fotomuseum Antwerpen.
