Disciplines: Fotograaf, Mediakunstenaar

Omschrijving werk

Wessel Baarda is a The Hague based photographer/artist who uses his surroundings to bring out compelling details in his subjects, which range from the mundane to the exclusive. Common objects take on a new guise when re-photographed, re-assembled, or juxtaposed together in colourful, unexpected and humorous combinations. It’s these short glimpses of spotting something and fixating on the subject that turn the documentary images into something more than just a documentary photograph. It becomes a work of itself by extracting it from the environment. Besides this ongoing body of work he also creates research based art projects with the focus on online media and takes inspiration from found imagery. These projects are poking at online imagery to address the ways in which the Internet is affecting—and reflecting—our contemporary experience.
