About Frank van Bennekom

Let me first start by introducing myself. My name is Frank van Bennekom and I’m an analog photographer from Amsterdam. Originally schooled as an architect I started with photography and got selected for New Dutch Photography Talent of 2018 by GUP Magazine in the Netherlands. My work has a nostalgic aesthetic by using soft colour film and vintage camera’s when photographing beauty in life that embodies this atmosphere.

Van Bennekom starts to discover photography mostly traveling around the world with his analog cameras during holidays. Using his analog camera felt like freedom to him. Van Bennekom managed to extract the essence of a moment so precisely that it seems that he is pointing his camera at something that can’t be named, but can only be felt.
