The creative duo of photographer Maurice Scheltens and visual artist Liesbeth Abbenes, are a powerful pair. Creating some of the most visually striking and recognizable imagery around, their photography and styling work can be seen on the pages of top publications for major design directed brands. Their work is planted firmly on a modernist foundation often “reducing the object to clean geometric lines, that will ultimately only exist as a two dimensional image.” A study in composition, resulting in an artful expression that draws the eye to a product line in an unconventional way. Void of environment, their stylistic approach focus’ on the object only, through a study of composition and form. I just love this work. It’s pure, simple and focused. Just the beauty of each subject uniquely revealed.
“Combining their distinct but partly overlapping fields of expertise, Scheltens & Abbenes create commissioned photographs for cultural institutions and large companies (Vitra, Hermes, COS and Yves Saint Laurent) and editorials for magazines (Fantastic Man, The Gentlewomen and New York Times Style magazine).”
