Photography by Erik Van Der Weijde

Erik Van Der Weijde

Erik van der Weijde´s work is bringing light to non-spectacular and common images of our daily life - the house we live in, the lamp illuminating the street, our touristic customs, family portraits and many other popular subjects.

Through his accurate series of photographs, he is tracing a path between history, culture, education, cliché and everyday habits; thanks to the attention to small odd details that each of them is hiding behind he is able to trace a link between far entities.

He is collecting and showing images which become a symbol of the subjects they portray, showing us the weight and sometimes forgotten gravity of their existence.

His photographic work is accompanied by many different books and zines - self published or in collaboration with renewed publishers - which in many cases point the attention to the idea of repetition and constancy of his photographic series, allowing the research to be fully presented through the publications.
