About Ops Opis
Ops Opis is the fourth volume in a series of botanical still-lifes by van Dongen. The books in the series have an outstanding sensitivity. Further, the detail in the large-format images are beyond beautiful.
This volume presents 32 images of botanical nature; from bunches of grapes, to leaves, to flowers. Each image has been enhanced not only by the size of the book but by the knowledge of the photographer. Van Dongen’s utter care on the arrangements and compositions is present in every single image of the book.
About Ron Van Dongen
Ron van Dongen was born in Venezuela in 1961, and grew up in the Netherlands where he originally studied the health sciences. In 1989, Van Dongen moved to San Francisco where he studied fine art. He polished his printing skills under the tutelage of Roger Minick, a fine art photographer and expert printer. At this time, the artist began to develop his idea of concentrating on the details of his subject. After cultivating his own garden, van Dongen began to photograph flowers more exclusively. Ron van Dongen’s images of still lifes are in the grand tradition of master photographers such as Eugène Atget, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Joel Peter Witkin, yet they are also imbued with a contemporary sensibility and display a command of modern photographic techniques.
