I, Dennis Konijnenburg (1981), am a self-taught multidisciplinary artist. Starting in photography, I began by capturing jazz musicians. There arose a fascination with the moments between the music; in such a dynamic genre, there were always moments of stillness.
The contrast between a musician fully engaged in the music and the moments of stillness was the first time I noticed this interplay. And I've been searching for it ever since. From music to the streets, I was looking for the same contrast between dynamism and stillness. I searched for tiny moments to capture where those two elements met.
A few years later, I transitioned into trying to create these moments of convergence myself through more abstract photography in the studio, experimenting with photograms and playing with shadows, depth, and light. This led me to explore the same search with other materials, including my work with wood.
