About Jesse van der Tuuk

Born in 1996. Based in The Hague.

Jesse’s interests are grounded in the simple surroundings of daily life. His work aims to highlight aspects many don’t notice, as he always tries to uncover the oddities within the ordinary. Instead of focusing on people and portraits, they are granted a voice through their surroundings and objects. This is not always a straightforward process, but rather semi-fictional and based around personal memories and cinematic reality. Highlighting these objects and capturing what Jesse thinks stands out, means giving the city a new dimension. Hereby this process does not only create photos for the unfamiliar spectator, but also aims to aid his neighbours and friends with experiencing the unordinary in everyday life.
