Rob Severein (b.1964, Amsterdam) is a Dutch visual artist, photographer and author. After a successful career in advertising as an art director and creative director, he finally leaves his own agency in 2011 to pursue a career in photography. He enrols in a 3-year master’s program at the Amsterdam Photo Academy.

 In his work Rob focuses on stories and backgrounds about people and their connection to a certain place. His series about the Exclusion Zone around Chernobyl and the right wing AZOV battalion in Ukraine were published in NRC Handelsblad and VICE Magazine. He was also nominated for the SO Dutch Photography Awards 2015.

 In 2017/2018 he participated in the Northern Lights Photography Masterclass (Noorderlicht Photography Masterclass).

 Rob recently finished a photography project about ‘the big void’ in FOORBIJ NIJ ALTOENAE (Past Nij Altoenae). A book was published in October 2020. At the moment he is working, next to commercial assignments, on some new ideas.

 “My work has a strong narrative character. It distinguishes itself by a deep fascination for headstrong people and their relationship to their natural surroundings. I combine landscapes, stills and portraits in which I try to let poetry, personal stories and experiences of strangers shimmer through in a way that touches me.”
