Hi,

 

Welcome to my website.

 

My name is Coen Dijkstra,

I'm a 1986 born Dutch reportage photographer, based in Amsterdam.

 

My work relies on two quotes that inspire me:

 

"As a society we need to know where we want to go to." - Thomas Piketty

 

"Local initiatives could inspire others when they get more broadly known." - Naomi Klein

 

To me, to photograph means giving shape to these ideas.

 

Reportage photography is creating an image of a subject or theme by multiple pictures. It could be a story, it could be like an essay as well. Notably, reportages result in a serie of photos that convey a versatile message in its full array.

 

I like to show the micro worlds where new, alternative things happen, that could benifit all of us, if we would know them better.

 

Please contact me if you feel like. I'm open for commissions.

And take a look around now, if you haven't done yet!
