About the AuthorRuud van Ruitenbeek
RVanR Manchester, UK
I am a self taught photographer from the Netherlands, now living and working in the UK. At age twelve I was taught the basics of photography by my father and I have been taking photographs ever since.
I want my images to tell a story and the best ones are those that can tell many stories. Some of them can be true, but they don't need to be. I want to invite the viewer to think about the images, wander into them, and make up their own narrative.
As can be seen from my work I like symmetry, rythm and balance. With my images I try to surprise, engage the viewer and show beauty in places and subjects from around the world and where you might not expect it.
