Rudi practically only photographs people. Restricting himself to this single subject gives the necessary focus and concentration. Interfering with the subject is undesirable, nothing is staged. His favorite hunting ground is the street; strolling around inconspicuous, meanwhile sharply observing waiting for that single moment that everything comes together. Photographing is done intuitively, loosely and without hesitation. Crucial in the process is rigorously selecting the raw material afterwards in search of the image that works.
Rudi Verhagen is based in Zutphen, the Netherlands.
