My name is Bram van Oosten (1985) and I work with photographic resources. That is to say that I don’t photograph with these resources, but that I work with the materials in itself to get to a work. I became a collector of several photographic papers and a divergent sort of chemicals. Every work arises from experiment where coincidence plays a big part in the process of making. I have to renew myself constantly. If I know in advance what will happen, the magic will be lost.
I chose for the colour green because nature is an important inspirator for me – even though this is quite a contradiction with all the chemicals. It is important for me to have balance between being outside and the hours that I spend in the darkroom.
