My Bio

Biography Dutch photographer Lars van de Goor was born in 1964 on a houseboat in the middle of lush farmland, and here he grew up being virtually part of the nature that surrounded him. His first passion was music, joined by photography in 2007, and the link between both is composition.

Inspirations While influenced by romantic landscape painters, Dutch Masters such as Barend Cornelius Koekkoek (1803-1862), and also the work of other photographers, both hobbyists and professionals, Lars’s prime source of inspiration comes from the mysterious encounter of nature and light, and the main theme of his work is the trees of his native Gelderland. These he respectfully depicts in their old power and timeless energy, and their mingling with the famous Dutch light yield landscapes with dragons as well as mysterious cathedrals, at times eerie in their sublime other worldliness. His images open a window to air and time, even sound and smell. Only occasional people in the frame or the inclusion of man-made objects remind the viewer that they are still on their own planet.

Traveling Since September 2017 me and my wife Annemarie started a new way of living and working. We exchanged our home in Lochem, the Netherlands, for a mobile one in which we travel through Europe. We will return on a regular basis also because my company is still based in the Netherlands, however these trips allow me to deepen my photography and give me more time to explore the woodlands in Europe.
