LARS VAN DE GOOR
Dutch photographer Lars van de Goor was born in 1964 on a houseboat in the middle of lush farmland, and here he grew up being virtually part of the nature that surrounded him. His first passion was music, joined by photography in 2007. Quote "In a way I am still composing". While influenced by romantic landscape painters, Lars’s prime source of inspiration comes from the mysterious encounter of nature and light, and the main theme of his work is trees. These he respectfully depicts in their old power and timeless energy. Lars van de Goor won the Hasselblad Master Awards in 2016 in the landscape/ nature category. Also in the prestigious Trierenberg awards he has won first prize and gold medal.
