Bram Tackenberg: Living Room Portraits

Bram Tackenberg: Living Room Portraits
International Photography Grant 2019

About his project Bram says: “In 2015 I’ve started making this series, which is still in progress. I’ve been cruising the Netherlands visiting Dutch households in diverse compositions, photographing them in their own living rooms. Due to the solemn approach and seeming lack of emotion, the portraits tend to transcend the everyday. I’m aiming on making photos which become true documents, meeting resemblance with former portraits of dignataries. But the display of power and prestige replaced by ones own individuality.

Bram Tackenberg – born in Heerlen, The Netherlands. Based Gouda. Study Fine Arts in Arnhem (2000) and master in Enschede Dutch Art Institute (DAI) 2002.
