ogier van Zeventer’s tryst with photography began when he was around six or seven years old; he took pictures with his dad’s Pentax on holidays, in France. The artist got his first DSLR from his grandmother in 1996 – an analog Canon. Rogier’s love for the art developed alongside the photos and slides in his dad’s darkroom; the father-son duo would spend rainy Sundays together, developing photos in the darkroom. Though Rogier takes photographs of food, people and nature, this self-taught photographer likes taking pictures of people, the most.
