Remco Nagtzaam is a photographer based in Eindhoven (the Netherlands), travelling throughout Europe to create his magazines.
With a big interest in cities and people I embarked on this project, visiting a new city every three months to create a printed magazine in which the relationship between city and people becomes apparent. The personality of a city is an interwoven connection of architecture and people’s dreams, one is fueling the other.
My view on beauty revolves around the concept of vulnerability, honesty and self-awareness. This view is easily recognized in my portraits, for this project I seek the same qualities in the cities landscape. It is this vision that sets the tone for the magazines.
After graduating at the FotoAcademie Amsterdam (December 2016) I quickly realised I wanted to keep on pushing my creative outlets. After a few different ideas the concept for the magazines arose. Combining two of my biggest passions, being on the road and being able to meet and photograph a lot of different people in unexpected moments and places.
Portraits have been the cornerstone of my photography for many years. I strongly believes people's hopes, dreams and fears are what make people stand out and beautiful, being able to capture this in images is my biggest reward.
