  • ARTIST: Jacob Berghoef (jacobberghoef)
  • LOCATION:North Jutland, Denmark
  • STYLES: Abstract Impressionist, Abstract, Other
BIO: I am inspired by the complexity and vulnerability of nature. At the same time, nature is so strong, and shows itself to us in great simplicity.
Nature speaks to us in a modest silence. My photos and short prose and poems show how I hear the words of nature.

Artist statement

Daily life in the western world is overflowing with stimuli that continuously force our senses to the limit of their abilities. In my photographs I seek to capture the simplicity and tranquility of natural environments and to share my experience of nature’s soul.

My work is often described by others as abstract, minimalist and impressionist. My style is distinct and pure, and is characterized by soft colors, soft focus and the effects created by how I move my camera during making the photo. I like experimenting and exploring the limits of what the camera can handle.
I myself often describe my style as abstract realism.

I mostly work in nature where I immerse myself in the shapes, colors, sounds and stillness of the natural surroundings.
My work can be described as the most pure form of fine art photography, since I choose to create the abstract and impressionist effects as seen in my photographs, using only the basic camera settings.
Photo software is used only to remove dust or to adjust brightness, contrast and cropping to improve my compositions. I don’t manipulate my photos and I don’t use digital editing tools or filters.

The titles of my photos are an important element of the entire work of art. In addition, I often write a short poem or a few lines of prose to a photo.

With my artworks, I want to tease and stimulate more than just your sight. I want you to sense what I sensed when I made the artwork; the light, the temperature, the atmosphere… sometimes even the scent of a damp autumn forest and the cold of the whirling salty breath of a storm on the beach of the North Sea.

Biography

I am a self taught fine art photographer, with extensive experience in analog photography, developing and printing in my own darkroom, as well as working with digital cameras.

Since 2014, after quitting a demanding job in facilities management and real estate, I focused on simple, natural and sustainable living. This new way of living is reflected in my work; I am exploring the simpleness and the stillness of pure, natural environments with my camera.

I was born in the city of Gouda, the Netherlands in 1959. I currently live with my wife and dog in a small farmhouse in the Thy region in North West Jutland, Denmark. The special (nordic) light and colors in this coastal area inspired me to develop my current style. My photographs are being exhibited around the world and have been sold to collectors and art lovers in various countries. LESS...
