Sander Meisner was born in 1979. He is a self taught photographer living and working in Amsterdam. His photographic works deal with themes and ideas considering public space, abstraction, transformation, the passing of time, change, utopia/dystopia, function and transition. Today we share his series, “Momentum”.
In geometric, almost abstract shapes and lines, he photographs the usually overlooked corners of our urban infrastructure. These photographs are made at night, when the sun is gone and the artificial light of the night creates colors and shapes which cannot be seen with the naked eye.
“When I photograph these grim and grey places and expose the photographic film with extremely long exposures, the night turns out to be both very colorful and beautiful at the same time. Wandering through the edges of cities, looking for colorful beauty in the desolate corners of grey, man-made, structures, I photograph the (sleeping) infrastructure of the urban environment.”
Sander has held solo exhibitions in the Netherlands, and has been part of numerous group exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad. His work has been published internationally and in online and printed publications. He is represented by Gallery Brandt.
