Né en 1963 - Netherlands

BIOGRAPHIE

After 12 years of jobs in marketing, Erik Hijweege (1963) decided to follow his heart and became a photographer. Since then he makes commissioned work as well as free series. In 2004 he published the photobook "Noir” in which he portrayed the African San tribe and Albino’s. In 2011 he published "Supercell” (under his pseudonym Kevin Erskine), a monumental study of great storms in Tornado Alley in the US. In 2012 he photographed The Netherlands as if it were a miniature, also leading to a book: "Holland”.

Since 2013 Erik Hijweege also uses the 19th century Wet Collodion technique, thus creating so called ambrotypes. His first project with this technique is "Een eigen gezicht” celebrating the beauty of people with facial disorders. He published a book with the same title in October 2014.

In November 2014 he has published the book "Endangered”, the second series with Ambrotypes, concentrating on the subject of endangered species. There was a solo exhibition with this series in the Museum of Natural History in Rotterdam, The Netherlands from December 2014 - March 2015.

His latest project is about "Sublime Nature", with great images of iconic landscapes, storms and waterfalls. For many years Erik has travelled all around the world to capture the magic of this brutal force of nature. Especially his moonlight images are among the most dreamlike possibilities to experience these waterfalls.
