I am a passionate documentary and portrait photographer. My work consists of extensive portrait series in which I pay attention to important topics such as diversity, inclusiveness, racism, discrimination and exclusion. Being a gay man myself, I feel very close to socially engaged topics. In these projects, the ‘underdog’ is the star. Their strength is a source of inspiration, their story needs to be told.
Adorn a bare wall with beauty and meaning. I guarantee it will change your perspective in more ways than one. I tell stories of brave people whose voices need to be heard. Invite these people into your home and have them broaden your horizon. Each image is striking: unapologetically beautiful and at the same time so much more than just a pretty picture.
My work has been showcased at photo festivals, museums, art fairs and exhibitions in public spaces in The Netherlands and abroad and is included in art collections. My work has been awarded multiple times.
At This Art Fair, for the 1st time, several of the award-winning ‘SOLD’ portraits will be available in a very limited edition.
My work is sold in limited edition, numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.www.ernstcoppejans.com
