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, category Human.
