Mark van den Brink – Stills & Stones
|Author||Mark van den Brink|

Amsterdam-based photographer Mark van den Brink has spent years on the road, often behind the wheel of his Chevy van, as an inconspicuous voyeur, capturing the world around him with a Minox camera. But for ‘Stills & Stones’, he decided to put his camera to work shooting still lifes for the first time. It started with a stone, set on a stool and with a suspended canvas tarp as the backdrop. All the advantages of the Minox went out the window. To focus, he needed a tape measure on hand. His usual split-second, casual shots from a comfortable angle were impossible. The subject matter, combined with a stubborn refusal to use any other camera, forced him to adopt a new strategy.
