Misha de Ridder

Dune (2006) / Solstice (2012)

With SOLSTICE the photographer Misha de Ridder seeks nothing less than to record the sublimity of nature. For him it is not a matter of reducing nature at a saccharine picture post card, but rather of laying bare its various emotional dimensions, from the meditative to the sinister. In DUNE De Ridder sought echoes of the past in the landscape of today, in this case in the Kennemer Dunes of North Holland. With his work De Ridder tries to make something which is pre-eminently individual, namely the experience of a landscape, accessible for viewers.
