Gerco DE RUIJTER (1961)
Since the second half of the eighties, artist-photographer Gerco de Ruijter, born in Vianen in 1961, has been investigating the landscape. By attaching his camera to kites, balloons and rods, he visualises the world from points of view that deviate from our usual perspective. In De Ruijter’s enigmatic and almost abstract landscapes, the human scale competes with nature and recognition goes hand in hand with alienation. In his photography the traditional landscape image takes on a new dimension.
Since 2012, De Ruijter has also used satellite images from Google Earth in his work. The result of this can be seen in the films: ‘’Crops’’ from 2012 and ‘’Playground’’ from 2014, as well as in his latest photo series and film: ‘’Grid Corrections’’ from 2017 till 2019.
