|Born||Erwin Olaf Springveld
2 July 1959
Springveld is most famous for his commercial and personal work. He has been commissioned to photograph advertising campaigns for large international companies such as Levi's, Microsoft and Nokia. Some of his most famous photographic series include "Grief", "Rain", and "Royal Blood". Never one to shy away from controversy, Springveld's work is often daring and provocative. Humorously however, one of his early photographs was once expelled from a show on the basis of not containing nudity.
Springveld studied journalism in the School of Journalism in Utrecht. His work is shown in galleries and museums all around the world, for example at Wagner + Partner, Berlin; Flatland Gallery, Utrecht; Hamiltons Gallery, London; Galerie Magda Danysz, Paris; Gallery Espacio Minimo, Madrid ; and many others.
