Bastiaan Woudt exhibition at MENDO
Expo at MENDO
The work of sought-after Dutch photographer Bastiaan Woudt who has just released his new book Rhythm is currently being exhibited at our flagship store at Nieuwe Doelenstraat 10 in Amsterdam.
With charcoal tones and elegant compositions, his photography feels like stepping into a modern painting. Light and shadow dance elegantly. You’ll find a hint of surrealism as the sober shades ask you to see only the essence and awakens every detail. His work is minimalistic yet moves, playing with the beauty of imperfection — again, inspired by 50s, 60s and 70s photography.
The framed prints are for sale both at the exhibition and online at MENDO.nl. Shop prints here.
In light of Bastiaan’s exhibition we sat down with him to talk about his practice, the making of his new book – Rhythm and what he finds inspiring as an artist. Read the interview here.
Bastiaan Woudt (1987, NL) is a sought-after photographer that started a mere ten years ago without formal training. Besides his raw talent, he owes his rise in the art world to a strong work ethic and an entrepreneurial edge. From emotive portraits to mystic landscape photography, he is known to capture monochrome minimalism at its finest.
Bastiaan Woudt began his journey into photography both by diving into photography books and experimenting with modern techniques. He learnt from the masters such as Irving Penn and Richard Avedon while exploring his own artistic instinct. Soon enough, Woudt was winning International awards and saw his work hung up in high-end galleries.
