Djojo & Versteeg consists of two multidisciplinary artists. Rik Versteeg (1990) graduated as a Fine-Art photographer in 2013 and Danny Djojosoedarmo (1993) is a self-educated make-up artist and stylist. The duo met at the Willem de Kooning academy in Rotterdam.
By combining forces we found a way to complement each other’s skills and create images that capture the essence of human experience. We convey our images (concepts) into a fantasy realm, marked out with both imagination and a thought-provoking reference to the real world.
We aim to create aesthetic, conceptual and stylized imagery based on social themes. Using topics that are currently playing a social role in society, we want to trigger the minds of our viewer.
Our images unveil a careful process that can be considered an investigation about the liminal area in which imagination and perceptual reality find an unexpected point of convergence. We aim to show the viewer an undiscovered and subconscious world with our photography.
We draw most of our inspiration from theories, myths, technology and gender, but most importantly; the way the human being is able to relate to it.
By de-constructing a two-dimensional concept and layering it again, we are able to create new images with a twist. These images are open for a broad interpretation and stimulate our viewers’ physique.
