CZAR Amsterdam sign Iris Haverkamp Begemann
CZAR Amsterdam’s growing photography roster has an exciting new signing with Iris Haverkamp Begemann.
Amsterdam-based documentary photographer Iris Haverkamp Begemann is fascinated by the relationships which human beings establish with each other and their environment, to find order in the world we live in.
With her camera, Begemann explores the powerful influence of social constructed realities. Adventurous, and driven by a desire to question this reality, she has photographed several beautiful personal projects. Travelling and working together with different people and groups around the world for months on end to intimately capture their lives on film.
Begemann’s investigative, documentary style gives an authentic and original edge to her more commercial commissions. There is a deliberate and intimate process involved when using a medium format analogue camera, and it gives Iris the time to establish meaningful connections with her models. The result are photographs with true depth; photographs which tell a story.
Nina Pus, Head of Photography at CZAR Amsterdam, shares: “I am so proud and happy to have Iris join our roster. Iris is enormously talented, and her fascinating photographs truly capture, and keep a hold of, the viewers’ imagination.”
