Koen Taselaar.

Categorised as Uncategorized

I stumbled across Koen Taselaar while trawling through skateboard photography groups on flickr about two years ago. Since then I’ve watched his work develop from afar, like a stalker hiding out in the bushes with binoculars, but in my flickr live feed instead. Koen’s skate photography is extraordinary in the true sense of the word; unlike the rapid fire digital shots you so often see, his medium format photos seem almost staged – the subject suspended indefinitely two feet above a transition. The soft grain of his photos also make the subject pop out of the background more than any photoshopping could achieve. His other work has a strong sense of urban vs. nature running through it – hailing from Rotterdam, Holland, a beautiful yet industrial city, he manages to find scenes that parallel urban life with nature within his immediate surroundings. At the moment he’s mostly been drawing, and has just released a new book entitled ‘These Modern Bugs 2.0,’ but we’ll have some more on that in the future. For now here is a selection of our favourite photos he’s taken.

Check out Koen’s flickr or website.
