George van der Vlugt captures individuals that engage him.
Each photograph is a documentary portrait, in the purest sense.
His subjects have a distinct background and an original story:
a specialist, a dying breed, a tribe, a distant culture.
Poses are natural, balanced.
Movements are quiet and thoughtful.
A distinctive, subtle light guides the eye
through the image and frames the subject.
The background detail is softly illuminated.
What emerges is a rich, pure portrait.
