Bas Losekoot is an artist and photographer whose work addresses socio-cultural issues in cities around the world. He uses cinematographic apparatus and techniques to challenge the understanding of everyday urban realities, as well as the limited narrative potential of documentary photography’s representations of truth. Though his practice combines concepts of mobility, sociology and urban theory, he uses his intuition to visualise the human experience in modern megacities.
He holds a BA in Fine Art Photography from the Royal Academy of the Arts in The Hague and an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures from Goldsmiths, University of London. He has exhibited internationally at galleries, museums and festivals, including BOZAR, Belgium; Voies-Off/Les Rencontres d’Arles, France; Jimei x Arles, China; Kaunas Photography Gallery, Lithuania, FotoIstanbul, Turkey; LagosPhoto, Nigeria; and Unseen Photo Fair, the Netherlands. A variety of international media outlets have featured his work, including The New York Times LENS Blog, The New Yorker Photo Booth, CNN Editions, The Guardian, Die Zeit, NRC Handelsblad, IMA Magazine and the British Journal of Photography.
