“When Corné van der Stelt photographs you - I experienced it once - something kind of funny happens,” writes former 'Nieuwe Revu' editor Gerrit Mollema. “He informs how you are doing, puts you at ease. In the meantime he observes, walks around you, fiddles with his equipment. And then looks again.
For the person portrayed it seems a relaxed introduction, but Corné is already busy at work. He tries to gauge the person who is going to be in the photo, he looks at the light, the location, tastes the atmosphere. In short, he directs the photo to be taken in advance - because Van der Stelt doesn't just make portraits. Like the photographers Corne draws inspiration from - people like Martin Schoeller and Gregory Crewdson - he tries to imagine a thought, resulting in touching the viewer.
Anyone who looks at the oeuvre of Corné van der Stelt will be amazed at the versatility of his talent. But especially about his passion for his profession and the people he photographs. His portraits are always shot with great craftsmanship. They are often stunning. And in very few cases they are even works of art.”
