Florian Braakman (1988), based in Rotterdam, NL
Work for clients

“My daily life in Rotterdam is important fuel for my work in which I connect with people. I’m interested in various social phenomena within the urban landscape, which I approach from a my personal point of view and the view of the people I collaborate with. The focus in my work is to have a vulnerable and fearless open minded view on the world around me. To look at what connects us as human beings. We still have so much to learn from each other.

I’m a photographic artist and my work focusses on the concept of neighbourhood and community. I use photography in an intuitive way and as a direct tool to make contact with my surroundings, the people and objects that I encounter in my daily life. My series of images I use in (audiovisual) installations and publications.

My recent works are Broer, a portrait series where I photograph all the guys on the street that call me ‘broer’ (brother). In Between Homes is a project in which I travel with my neighbours to their countries of origin.
