Photographic designer Bob Karhof specializes in figurative representation of architecture and landscapes. The central theme of his work is great urbanity. He has developed a method to blend photographic images together: in the camera's which are built by himself.
In his works is no digital manipulation! The panoramas are a reflection of perception of form, time and place. To this experience to capture with photograhpic means, Bob Karhof developed his own photographic medium. This enables him to create a multiple panoramic image with different exposures on location. Bob Karhof considers the sequences are not known in advance, but lets them arise from intuitive succession. He takes a first picture and let his intuition to determine what the next should be. The first image creates a logical next step, a logical next image until the image sequence eventually a new panorama.
Bob Karhof is an European Photographer based in Utrecht, te Netherlands. He uses his camera's to make free work as well as in assignments.
