In addition to being a photographer, Abel van Dijk also works in the film industry as director of photography.

He applies the inspiration, craft and techniques that arise from the film industry in the elaboration of his photography ideas.
His work is characterized by a surreal, cinematic tone.

The 'Emerging Bodies' is a representation of the feeling of confinement. Locked up in your own body, mind and thoughts. The series paints a picture of a highly subjective world. With the work, Abel hopes to give the viewer the courage to break out of their own bubble and make contact with the people around them.
