Brug Artis / Olifanten Artis (Dutch Only)

Afgelopen jaar hebben we Artis met een groot team weten te redden door middel van een donatie campagne en een grote print aanbieding. Dit bleek een enorm succes, de meeste edities zijn uitverkocht. Voor twee prints, Olifanten en Brug, komt er nog een kans om deze aan te schaffen. Maar dan op een groter formaat van 80 bij 100 cm. De editie is 5 per beeld. Foto’s worden geleverd met lijst en museumglas, gesigneerd en genummerd.
De prijs is € 2500 per foto, inclusief 9% BTW. Mocht u binnen Nederland wonen dan zal ik de foto persoonlijk bezorgen.

Olifanten Artis 2020

Solo exhibition and book launch. 19 March 2022.

“Moving from A to B with the ferry across the open water feels grandiose. Standing at the railing on the outer deck, the mainland disappearing behind you and the island slowly looming up in front of you, something strange happens. A tranquillity came over me that I had never experienced before. A new world lay at my feet.”

– Jeroen Hofman

The cover of ‘EILAND’

Photographer Jeroen Hofman worked for years in all weathers on this magnum opus, capturing the Dutch islands in monumental images like a contemporary painter. All the photos were taken from an aerial platform, which enabled him to capture the landscape and the horizon in a very special way. 

An island has a mythical appeal to man and the imagination. This book celebrates and depicts the longing for an island as a place of rest, nature and seclusion. 

With text contributions by journalist and writer Arnold van Bruggen, who lives on Texel and made the iconic book The Sochi Project together with Rob Hornstra, and by Willemijn van der Zwaan, curator at Fotomuseum Den Haag. 

Publication at the solo exhibition of the same name at Fotomuseum Den Haag, from 19 March to 19 June 2022.

About me

Jeroen Hofman 1976 — The Netherlands


Whether documenting the city parks of Amsterdam and Rotterdam or the Frisian islands, I have a particular method: working from up high, standing on an elevated platform. The trouble of renting a hydraulic hoist for every shoot pays off: seen from a bird’s eye view, the architecture of the parks, or the vastness and tranquility of the islands, become clearly visible. It’s a height at which you can no longer understand what the people below are saying and the birds above you are just out of reach.

For my latest project, ‘EILAND’, I visited the Frisian Islands in the Wadden Sea. They are a popular tourist destination in the Netherlands. The islands are the perfect natural escape; a place where endless thoughts make way for endless horizons.

A few works have since been bought by private collectors and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for its embassies. Much of my commercial work is offered to me by people who have seen my personal work and want to incorporate my style or aesthetic fingerprint into their products or projects.
