About Maarten

Maarten Goes is a Dutch photographer from Amsterdam. As a kid Maarten was already an active user of the camera and fascinated with the many possibilities. This eventually led to him going the Foto Vakschool at a later age and from that moment on he workes intensively on developing his sense of making fantasy scenes. Maarten works in his studio as well as outdoors and his aspiration is to create distinctive, remarkable images. With his approach he likes to challenge the viewer and make them wonder: is it fantasy or reality? This seems to be highly appreciated.

 

Maarten prefers to focus on his free work. At the start of a new project he often has a strong idea of the final result, however, throughout the process of playing with the camera, the object and the post-editing, the idea as well as the result changes and developes mostly into something even better. Maarten experiences the process of post-editing as a second way of creative expression. In the end, each viewer creates their own story; imagination has free reign. That is what makes photography so interesting.

 

Nicky about

Maarten’s work makes you wonder what it is you’re looking at. It makes you want to look closer and makes you want to look a second time. It’s really cool when a photographer is able to acomplish that.
