Biography

Hans Wilschut lives and work in Rotterdam, Netherlands

In his urbanized landscapes, Hans Wilschut shows a recent interest for areas that are changing because of the pressure of globalization. Social and cultural changes, increased activities of tourism, the shifting of the world economy and the demographic growth, which have caused differences and dramatic changes in culture and nature.

On the edge of the public and private domain, round ravel borders of cities, Wilschut investigates the areas where changes occur and are made manifest. He does not strive for an objective reproduction of reality. This gives his work a post-documentary character. His urban still lives have most of all a lyric character.

His images respond to a world in flux and undergoing globalization.
