Cassander Eeftinck Schattenkerk

As a visual artist and photographer, I exhibited in numerous venues in The Netherlands and abroad: Italy, Hong Kong and the UK. In 2008 I was nominated for the photography prize of the Hyères Festival in France.
Using nature and scientific imaging as my inspiration, I stage natural phenomena. In my studio or on location, I achieve this with lo-fi special effects.
