RUUD VAN EMPEL FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY By Cyril Style 23 May 2010 @ 9:37 am | Categorized FEATURED, PHOTOGRAPHY |
51 year old Dutch photographer Ruud Van Empel has been working in the collage/ photoshop medium since the late 90s. Famous for his digitally manipulated, slightly eerie looking pictures of children. Van Empelâ€™s trademark pieces are picturing (mostly) black children in the middle of vibrant jungle or verdant landscapes.
Created and collaged and using photoshop, they are made up of hundreds of individual photographs so that every detail shimmers with life
Van Empelâ€™s work imagines a world somewhere between childrenâ€™s books, paintings, and science fiction.
