Jury's Feedback

  • © Baastian Woudt

    Judged by: Baastian Woudt

    The photographic journey of Dutch artist Baastian Woudt started at an early age. With no experience or formal training, Woudt developed his craft and signature style while devouring photobooks and visiting museums and fairs and his passion rapidly evolved towards a new emphasis on abstract form and sharper resolution for detail.

    Woudt is now known for his strong landscapes and black and white portraits, his eye catching works being mostly centred around the female body. Through a sophisticated use of both camera and post-production techniques, Woudt gives his own graphic and wholly contemporary twist to the classical.

    Woudt is represented by the Kahmann Gallery in Amsterdam and Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta. He has published several books and his work has been widely exhibited and featured in renowned magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, The British Journal of Photography, GUP and Vogue.
