Kees Tabak

A photographer is catching souls and his portfolio is the collection of what he caught. I started in the early eighties as a rockphotographer. My work was mainly black&white and made in obscure dressing rooms, squatted buildings and hotel rooms. It creates a moody atmosphere in the images. Nikon FM with a 24 mm lens and 1600 asa tri-x film. Later the stars came to my studio, black&white became colour and I used different cameras and experimented with light. In the meantime we have entered the digital age but I still love to do black&white photography. There is nothing I like better than photographing people in all facets. An image without people is like a house which is not being lived in. I love people and the way they sparkle on my images.
