Henk Bleeker Amsterdam portraiture, fashion and documentary photographers
"A photographer with the guts to be raw and natural," is the best way to describe Dutch photographer Henk Bleeker. His “head office” is located in a small village in the northern Dutch province of Friesland, but Henk doesn’t let borders hold him back; the world is his studio.
Whether he is recording the hard, rough life of Cuban street boxers, or the pure beauty of scantily clad women, every photo tells its own story. Each one is different, yet familiar thanks to his sharp eye and feel for lighting and composition.
Although Henk has varied interests, nothing makes his heart beat faster than typical “male” subjects. He is a no-nonsense kind of guy, and he aims to create an image in which reality rises above itself.
