Rogier Houwen (b. in Laren, The Netherlands in 1992) uses the photographic process
to explore and stretch perception.

In his current work he plays with the boundaries of perception and detaches himself from
the traditional photographic process: retouching ink, darkroom equipment, chemicals, unexposed negatives
and blank sheets of paper
are used as separate media.

Rogier lives in Amsterdam and works as a printer for Willem Diepraam
and the collection of the Rijksmuseum.
