This Is Not A Love Song, Part VI: Sander Dekker

This is not a love editorial. Somehow, this wants to be a sort of an introduction into another world, where, love exists, don’t worry, but, in other forms, more rudimental, more vivid, more natural, without that tricks you are seeing, daily, on TV or which airs on the Radio Station, tender and sweet and namby-pamby shity songs. To be short, we are searching for the unconventional face of love. We will introduce you some sort of artists who see this feeling – love – with those eyes that we wanted to see too. You will see what is all about and we hope you will enjoy our unconventional love.

Amsterdam-based Sander Dekker (b. 1980) is an unconventional photographer with a remarkable talent to capture magical moments. Or, should I say weirdly, yet outstanding photos. His work, shot with a 33 mm wideangle lens to mimic human eye vision, is highly spontaneous in the sense that he often shoots at locations he has never visited before, meeting his models just before the photo session and working from zero concept. He use photography as a tool to capture moments created through interaction and synergy, so his work can be considered a reflection of his own personality. Sander’s photography is defined by humour, positive energy, and infinite freedom.

“I think you can only teach somebody ‘how to make’ a picture, but not what to shoot. You can experiment in a lot of different fields, but it’s important to keep in mind that a picture should also reflects something of yourself.” (Source
