Dutch photographer Eddo Hartmann uses his photographic lens to investigate the modern world and the materials we leave behind.
Equal parts a study of excess and of decay, Hartmann’s photographs bear parallels to the documentary quality of the art form in the nineteenth century, yet he revisits this tradition in order to comment upon the ways in which our environment changes. Packing his images with intricate details and carefully staged elements, Hartmann’s photographs nevertheless have an inherently abandoned feel, allowing the viewer the ultimate freedom to explore their many components.
Based in Amsterdam, Hartmann earned his degree from the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK).
