Paul Bogaers

The Netherlands, Amsterdam galerie dudokdegroot

In his fascination with the use of found photography, Paul Bogaers (NL, 1961) can be considered one of the forerunners of today’s interest of photographers in found imagery. In his early works Bogaers has often combined his own photographs with amateur snapshots, newspaper clippings, postcards, pages torn from books and other found photographic sources. Association and suggestion play an important role in his combinations, in which he invites the viewer to discover new and surprising links.
