Bert Teunissen (NL)Philip van Schaik
Photographer and artist
Born in 1959. Bought his first camera in 1974 and built his own darkroom in 1976. Became a full time photographer in 1984.
During a long and successful career in commercial and advertising photography, Bert also reached the stage of international recognition with his personal photographic projects.
As a self taught photographer and artist he also teaches story telling and image making at the Crossmedia Design and Moving Image sections of the AKI Art Academy in Enschede, The Netherlands.
Bert is best known for his extensive European photo project ‘Domestic Landscapes’ in which the natural daylight in the interior leads him back to the memories of his childhood (published by Aperture in 2007).
Nowadays he is exploring the power of storytelling in sequences and series of single subjects from everyday situations (designed and published by Hans Gremmen / Fw:Books) and by using existing materials such as artefacts, vernacular images, roadmaps and historic photo papers.
