The photographer combines still lifes and landscapes of the Dutch 17th century painter Matthias Withoos with his own contemporary and surrealistic images.

As a painter he is known for his cityscapes and Italianate landscapes, with insects, reptiles and undergrowth. He followed his training with Jacob van Campen, a Dutch painter and architect of the Golden Age.

Hans Withoos (Son en Breugel, 1962) studied textile design and photography at the Academy of Visual Arts in Tilburg. He is based in Rotterdam and worked as a photographer for over thirty years, received international recognition and exhibits frequently. Withoos has made high-profile work for modern ballet company Introdans and Orange Babies foundation.

The extensive oeuvre of Hans Withoos has been bundled in the book 'Photographic Paintings' (2017). In 2018, the Westfries Museum in Hoorn presented a solo exhibition 'Withoos meets Withoos' with the launch of an eponymous photo book. The autonomous work of the inspired artist has been presented at leading art fairs such as the KunstRAI, PAN Amsterdam and Scope Miami. His work can be found in private collections worldwide.
