Rotterdam-based photographer, filmmaker and art director Lenny Oosterwijk shoots portraits of musicians, artists, actors, politicians and writers. Lenny searches for another truth behind the mask; the portraits are often intimate, confrontational or raw and straightforward. He was therefore nominated for the Dutch 'National Portrait Prize' in 2013.
Oosterwijk has been taking photos of rivers in elusive, almost abstract images for a number of years. The river as a symbol for endless movement. In 2014 he made the film 'Heraclitus' with the same theme: "No man ever steps in the same river twice". The film was selected by the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
Oosterwijk was also art director of Rails magazine, the Rotterdamse Uitagenda, Container and City Media Rotterdam for many years.
He recently started Galerie Untitled. The gallery located at Rotterdam North's creative hub is a place where different art forms come together with performances and readings. Untitled organizes an exhibition 6 times a year and participates in various art fairs.
