Maurice Van Es lives and works in The Hague (The Netherlands) and he is currently graduating at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague in photography (BA).

Maurice Van Es has has a unique way of seeing and composing a photograph, he plays with abstraction as he plays with our perception. Textures, that are omnipresent, create a debatable beauty emanating from realism.









“I am interested in the relationship we have with personal photographs and am fascinated by the role photography plays in our longing to hang onto the past. The fact that you can take picture that refers to a moment in time that will never come back inspires me to photograph.”
