Marco Bakker (1959) attended the MTS for Photography in The Hague from 1977 till 1982, where he was taught by the photographers Frederick Linck and Ed van Wijk, among others. From 1982 onwards working as an independent photographer, mainly as a portrait photographer for magazines and publishers. And recently more and more own projects, such as recently ‘Running before the Wind’ (about artist Vali Myers) and autonomous work.
The series ‘Dust’ at Sandvoort Gallery was created after a visit to the studio of artist Jan Tervoort in Monnickendam.
Marco: “I have known Jan for a long time, but his 25th anniversary as an artist is reason for me to visit him in his studio. I meet him as I know him, bursting with ideas. All material is suitable for making art and on the spot we decide to start a joint project, a photo series in which we are both inspired by Jan’s work and vision”.
