|Marcel Brons (1981)
I am a Dutch photographer and graphical designer, specialized in telling stories through images. I've got a special interest into storytelling through documentary and urban landscape photography, focussing on both autonomous and commissioned work. Mainly i use my photocamera to make stories, but to come to an end product i don't mind to use video, audio, animations and graphics in order to make books, exhibitions and multimedia presentations. I like to tell about normal life. To me that's the most special there is.
In 2012 i finished my studies of photographer cum laude at the "Fotovakschool" in Amsterdam with the project "GARAGEDOC". This project is focussing on a small but important piece out of daily Russian life. Garagedoc was published in Dutch newspaper "Trouw". In may 2013 the project was exhibited at the famous Dutch Photofestival Naarden.
In 2013 Garagedoc got a follow-up thanks to a grant from Stichting Anna Cornelis. The follow up is called "KOVJOR" and is also focussing on an interesting aspect from Russian daily life.
The logic result after four interesting, informative and positive trips to Russia is "GRUMPY RUSSIANS", wich is also focussing on a small and unknown (but very important) part of daily Russian life: the smile!
In 2015 i focussed on a big comissioned job for the Dutch government in Barcelona to make a photoserie about Dutch entrepreneurs abroad. This resulted eventually in designing and producing my first commissioned dual language book and a (first off) modular light weight exhibition, consisting out of 40 panels that were very easy to transport and therefore exhibited during one year in Spain and Holland.
