Hugo Keizer (1963) lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In his photos he searches for the perfect balance between his light, aesthetic and dark, moody sides. His work consists of series which start with an idea, and then, once started, shape and steer themselves. This is done in the belief that the work must grow organically, and an open mind kept to consider new angles.
Hugo Keizer works with 4X5” film, using technical cameras with long exposures. He develops and scans the film himself, thus retaining maximum control. With his experience printing film in a darkroom as a guide, he uses the computer to post-process his images.
