Bas Princen

Rotterdam-based photographer Bas Princen was first trained as an architect, before earning a reputation for documenting the vast structures and spaces he might once have helped create. With his photographs of giant construction sites and apparently absurd human artefacts he describes the oddity of human ‘civilisations’.

‘I go out to find photographs in which the artificial and the natural take each other’s forms and in which one is unable to see if things are being constructed or destroyed. I think that is the most interesting thing that can be said right now about the cities in which we live, and the landscapes in which we dwell (and vice versa).’ Bas Princen explaines.
