Kars Tuinder

Ever since my childhood I was interested in photography.

At the age of 15 I started studying at the Photo academy in The Netherlands.
I’m already 25 years working as a photographer.
I received several national and international awards.

The last years I focus more on documentary photography.
I get inspired when I travel and connect with the local community.
Telling stories to capture social and political events with the purpose of informing the public is something I feel is important.

In 2017 this resulted in winning the Monovisions award and the National Geographic Public Award Benelux, category Human.
