Misha de Ridder

Bokkendoorns, 2009

To search, to disclose and to write with light is what Misha de Ridder does in his landscape photos and videos. He does not seek the comfort zone of the beautiful and picturesque, but of the sublime. By seeking the absence of human intervention, by waiting for the climax of the temporal aesthetic and by pushing the camera to its technical limits De Ridder’s photographs become both exotic reports as autonomous artificial worlds. De Ridder has exhibited at Juliètte Jongma Gallery, Layr Wuestenhagen Contemporary, PhotoEspaña, the Triennial of Photography Hamburg, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, FOAM and The Museum of the City of New York. He has published several books of photography, including Wilderness (2003, Artimo), Dune (2011, Lay Flat), Abendsonne (2011, Schaden.com). He is represented by Juliètte Jongma Gallery in Amsterdam.
