Flower Photography by Bas Meeuws
Ever felt impressed so impressed by a gorgeous photo that you just have to stand there and look for hours? During my last visit at the museum de Zwarte tulp, I saw a photo of photographer Bas Meeuws for the very first time. The last couple of years I visited a lot of musea and saw a lot of painting by the old Dutch masters from the 17th century. The gorgeous full bouquets painted on canvas, I love those painting. At the museum I was surprised by the photographs of Bas Meeuws beautiful full bouquets in the style of the old Dutch Masters. I was stunned and watched every photograph for more than once. These photos fits perfectly to the theme of Keukenhof 2016 – the Golden Age!
But have a look for yourself.
More about the photographer
Bas Meeuws, born in 1974, is a passionate photographer who gave a new view to the Dutch still life with flowers. Do you remember the old paintings with gorgeous bouquets on it?
Bas Meeuws doesn’t paint his bouquets with a brush and oil paints, his art come from a digital camera. With great ingenuity he processes his pictures of flowers until he has created exactly the right image. The result is a series of unique and layered works of art. It takes around 60 to 100 hours to create such an image. Inspiration for his still lifes are the flower paintings of the great 17th century Dutch masters.
