Joeri Borst (1982) is graduated from the University of Applied Photography. In his work he is inspired by nature, which sharpens his senses and balances his mind. Nature, including human nature, is at its best when it is free to roam, according to Borst.
Nature is more than a pretty picture. She has much more to offer than that, is the belief of Joeri Borst. His photos are pure and still and often show isolated fragments of trees, branches, stones and water features. By processing them with different liquids –e.g. coffee and tea – and printing them on special types of paper, he emphasises the essential form and strength. His work is an appeal to people to really see nature, and thus themselves.
