Gijs Kast

The Netherlands

Gijs Kast's portraits are stripped from any form of aesthetic. The images offer a direct and confronting reflection of what underlies the humanity of the portrayed. Kast shows what is normally hidden, using his humor to make the painful experience of this exposure bearable. Kast reveals the venom within, and offers you the pleasure of a sarcastic peep. It isn't hard to tune into his work.
