The series “Lost Away” is a collection of analog photographs taken between 2015 and 2017 in Australia, Hawaii and South Africa by photographer Frank van Bennekom.
In this series Van Bennekom studies the correlation between escapism and the natural enviroment.
Focusing on beauty, the photographer’s work often has a nostalgic aesthetic, supported by his use of soft colour film and choice of vintage cameras.
Van Bennekom, originally schooled as an architect, has a cinematic approach to his analog stills.
Subjects such as sun-drenched beaches, empty roads and classic automobiles all embody the atmosphere of the jetsetter lifestyle that Van Bennekom enticingly presents.
Exhibition on show from the 8th of September until the 18th of October 2017, at Cloud Gallery, Prinsengracht 276, Amsterdam.
