This showcase series features the urban exploration of Jasper van den Ham.
Jasper introduced himself to Photophique:
For the past 10 years I have been working as a web designer in the Netherlands. I am 35 years old and although I have always been interested in photography, it’s been only a year ago that I started taking it seriously.
From that moment on I devote all of my spare time to learning everything I think is important. I’m a self-taught photographer, working intuitively, committed to make a living out of it.
Can you tell us more about this beneath the surface series
‘Beneath the Surface’ is a project on Woerden, a city in the Netherlands known for being ‘most common’. So when I moved here a couple of months ago I didn’t consider it an interesting photographic environment, but also inspired me.
After a while I started discovering all the beautiful places that lie beneath the surface. My goal is to publish all the photos in a book when the project is done. I think my work lies somewhere on the edge of serenity and drama.
What equipment did you use for this series?
I use a Nikon D3200 with the 18-55mm kit lens. I process using Lightroom, and sometimes do some refinements using Photoshop. I consider post-processing a significant part of revealing the image as I visualised it.
