Check out the work of Dutch artist Teun Hocks – performer, photographer, painter. ‘ In his photographs, Teun Hocks poses himself against painted backdrops, playing an innocent Everyman in an always strange and often funny world. His narrative approach expands on the precedent of Ger van Elk and reflects attitudes characteristic of his native Holland. The Dutch are travelers, and Hocks explores worlds of his imagination; the Dutch are informed observers, and Hock’s humor is frequently based on deadpan or passive responses to things beyond his control; the Dutch are traditional and family-centered, and Hocks often portrays unnecessary or even inappropriate convention in dress and behavior. ‘

I have to say Matt Hoyle’s images really jumped out of me. Very inspiring portfolio indeed. Bookmarked!
Taken from his website:
Matt Hoyle is a commercial and fine art photographer based out of New York City. Matt is known best for his portraits of rich characters and intriguing faces. His first priority in any shot is the person he is capturing. It sounds obvious but there are many photographers who are now very focused on just getting a cool, high definition look and forget about who they are shooting. Matt has a genuine interest in each individual he shoots and building a rapport with them is natural for him. He then directs them through their shoot to garner the most natural, trusting and intimate portraits — whether they are everyday people or high profile personalities.
Matt’s style is described as hyper-real because of the unique “grade” he applies to each image – similar to the post production treatment of a TVC or film. Matt seems to find the perfect balance between injecting a unique look & feel for each subject while still retaining the raw essence of their personality. It’s because of Matt’s relationship with his subjects and his visual treatment that people often describe his work as cinematic or painterly. There is a definite feel, mood or tone to each image but the person is still telling their own story.
