Erik van Cuyk - Photographer

"I focus on things that disappear or that nobody seems to pay attention to. It feels like injustice to me that those are not properly seen"

My name is Erik van Cuyk. I live in Arnhem,a Dutch medium-sized city near the German border. I once graduated as a lawyer but after a few wanderings (e.g. musician, consultant) I chose photography. In december 2018 I graduated from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam.

During my university studies I was touched by the philosophy of relativism. That has had a lot of influence on my world vision.

With my photography I explore the world and focus on the decline. As in the other side of succes. It's everywhere and I want to record it. It feels like somebody’s got to do it.
