Bas Losekoot is Dutch-born artist and photographer, concerned with socio-cultural issues in cities around the world. Working with cinematic techniques he is challenging our understanding of reality in everyday city-life as well as the limited narrative potential of representations of truth in documentary photography. With an intuitive eye he visualizes the human experience in modern megacities. His practise combines concepts of mobility, liminality, the cinematic, social geography and the influence of mass media on human behaviour.
Bas Losekoot holds a BA in Fine Art Photography from the Royal Academy of the Arts in The Hague and recently graduated for an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London. He is trained by Alessandra Sanguinetti and Alex Webb at Magnum Agency. His work has been sold to various private collections by auction houses Christie’s and Sotheby’s. His work is exhibited widely in galleries and at festivals like: New York Photo Festival, Voies-Off/Les Rencontres d’Arles and Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam. The Urban Millennium Project is published in a variety of international media like: The New Yorker, Die Zeit, Volkskrant, CNN Editions, GUP, IMA Magazine and the British Journal of Photography.
