Robert van der Hilst

Netherlands Born in: 1940

Robert van der Hilst, who was born in Amsterdam in 1940, pursues - beside his journalistic work (amongst others for Merian, Stern, Geo) - the subject of interiors in foreign countries. His first works were born in the Seventies in Mexico, and were followed by additional photo projects in Cuba from 2001 onwards, and then from 2004 onwards in different Chinese Provinces as well as in Japan.

Van der Hilst lived for many years in these countries. Through the long time he spent in Cuba, Canada, Latin America, Japan or China he manages to gain the trust of the people. The Photographer is capable therefore of creating intimate picture series, taking into account the cultural specificities of each country, and resulting in images which the subjects of the photos can relate to.

He manages to capture the day to day life of the people through facial expressions and body postures as well as through scenes of human interaction in the usually difficult to access private spaces.

The Shanghai Art Museum opened in April 2010 with Van der Hilst's solo show of Chinese Interiors.
