Willem van den Hoed (1965) uses his keen eye to register images of special places all over the world. ‘I photograph what I want to see. Rooms, buildings, cities. I like situations that have been created by human hand. Constructions, parallel lines, reflections, coherent shadows, and reliable vanishing points. In the cities I pass through and stay a while, a hotel room becomes a shelter, a cocoon.’ The temporary space feels like a challenging laboratory to him. The most prominent theme in Van den Hoed’s work is the study of the contrast between the intimate ambience of a hotel room and the public exterior. The glass that divides these worlds plays a crucial role in this process.
