« M. Khiar ? »

A former documentary photographer in the Middle East for international media such as Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, Jeroen Robert Kramer (1967, Amsterdam) began to take only seemingly insignificant objects or scenes images of daily life: “intimate carriers of meaning”. These might tell in the end paradoxically an even greater truth than his deadly war images. The pictures may show jumbled scenes or broken objects, such as this crack in a white wall, bringing across a truth of human existence and love.

Kramer is winner of the Dutch Doc Award and the New York Photo Book Festival Award. In 2015 his poetic photographs of Beirut were exhibited in the solo show Une Femme at Huis Marseille, Amsterdam.

Kramer is represented by FLATLAND, Amsterdam.
